ValueType Property

XPathItem.ValueType Property

When overridden in a derived class, gets the .NET Framework version 2.0 type of the item.

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

public abstract Type ValueType { get; }

Property Value

Type: System.Type
The .NET Framework type of the item. The default value is String.

When overridden in a derived class, the ValueType property gets the .NET Framework type of the typed value of the item.

For example, an element of type xs:int would have a ValueType of Int32 by default. However, the ValueType could be any one of the valid types that can be mapped to xs:int, such as Int16 or Double.

For more information about type support in the System.Xml namespace, see Type Support in the System.Xml Classes.
