SoapDateTime Class

Provides static methods for the serialization and deserialization of DateTime to a string that is formatted as XSD dateTime.

Namespace:  System.Runtime.Remoting.Metadata.W3cXsd2001
Assembly:  mscorlib (in mscorlib.dll)

[ComVisibleAttribute(true)]
public sealed class SoapDateTime

For more information about XSD data types, see "XML Data Types Reference" in the MSDN Library at http://msdn.microsoft.com/library.

The following code example shows how to use the methods in the SoapDateTime class to convert between a DateTime object and an XSD dateTime string.

using System;
using System.Runtime.Remoting.Metadata.W3cXsd2001;

public class Demo
{
    public static void Main(string[] args)
    {
        // Parse an XSD dateTime to create a DateTime object.
        string xsdDateTime = "2003-02-04T13:58:59.9999999+03:00";
        DateTime dateTime = SoapDateTime.Parse(xsdDateTime);

        // Serialize a DateTime object as an XSD dateTime string.
        Console.WriteLine("The date in XSD format is {0}.",
            SoapDateTime.ToString(dateTime));

        // Print the XSD type string of the SoapDateTime class.
        Console.WriteLine("The XSD type of SoapDateTime is {0}.",
            SoapDateTime.XsdType);
    }
}
#using <mscorlib.dll>
using namespace System;
using namespace System::Runtime::Remoting::Metadata::W3cXsd2001;

int main()
{
    // Parse an XSD dateTime to create a DateTime object.
    String* xsdDateTime = S"2003-02-04T13:58:59.9999999+03:00";
    DateTime dateTime = SoapDateTime::Parse(xsdDateTime);

    // Serialize a DateTime object as an XSD dateTime string.
    Console::WriteLine(S"The date in XSD format is {0}.",
        SoapDateTime::ToString(dateTime));

    // Print out the XSD type string of the SoapDateTime class.
    Console::WriteLine(S"The XSD type of SoapDateTime is {0}.",
        SoapDateTime::XsdType);
}
