The SoapTime type exposes the following members.

Public methodSoapTime()Initializes a new instance of the SoapTime class.
Public methodSoapTime(DateTime)Initializes a new instance of the SoapTime class with a specified DateTime object.

Public propertyValueGets or sets the date and time of the current instance.
Public propertyStatic memberXsdTypeGets the XML Schema definition language (XSD) of the current SOAP type.

Public methodEquals(Object)Determines whether the specified Object is equal to the current Object. (Inherited from Object.)
Protected methodFinalizeAllows an object to try to free resources and perform other cleanup operations before it is reclaimed by garbage collection. (Inherited from Object.)
Public methodGetHashCodeServes as a hash function for a particular type. (Inherited from Object.)
Public methodGetTypeGets the Type of the current instance. (Inherited from Object.)
Public methodGetXsdTypeReturns the XML Schema definition language (XSD) of the current SOAP type.
Protected methodMemberwiseCloneCreates a shallow copy of the current Object. (Inherited from Object.)
Public methodStatic memberParseConverts the specified String into a SoapTime object.
Public methodToStringReturns Value as a String. (Overrides Object.ToString().)

The following code example demonstrates using the SoapTime class to wrap an XSD time type.

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

public class Demo
    public static void Main(string[] args)
        // Parse an XSD gTime to create a SoapTime object.
        // The time zone of this object is the current time zone.
        string xsdTime = "12:13:14.123Z";
        SoapTime time = SoapTime.Parse(xsdTime);

        // Display the time in XSD format. 
        Console.WriteLine("The time in XSD format is {0}.",

        // Display the XSD type string of this particular SoapTime object.
        Console.WriteLine("The XSD type of the SoapTime object is {0}.",

        // Display the value of the SoapTime object.
        Console.WriteLine("The value of the SoapTime object is {0}.",

        // Display the XSD type string of the SoapTime class.
        Console.WriteLine("The XSD type of the class SoapTime is {0}.",
