ValueType Property

XmlReader.ValueType Property


Gets The Common Language Runtime (CLR) type for the current node.

Namespace:   System.Xml
Assembly:  System.Xml (in System.Xml.dll)

public virtual Type ValueType { get; }

Property Value

Type: System.Type

The CLR type that corresponds to the typed value of the node. The default is System.String.

Exception Condition

An XmlReader method was called before a previous asynchronous operation finished. In this case, InvalidOperationException is thrown with the message “An asynchronous operation is already in progress.”

See Type Support in the System.Xml Classes for a list of the default mappings.

An element of type xs:int has a ValueType of System.Int32 by default. However, the ValueType could be one of the valid types that can be mapped to xs:int, such as System.Int16 or System.Double.

If a node is un-typed, or if the node is an element that contains mixed content, the node value is mapped to the System.String type.

Notes to Implementers:

Implementers must provide a ValueType for every node, even if it is only the System.String type.
