XPathNavigator.ValueAsLong Property

public override long ValueAsLong { get; }
member this.ValueAsLong : int64
Public Overrides ReadOnly Property ValueAsLong As Long

Property Value


The current node's value as an Int64.


The current node's string value cannot be converted to a Int64.

The attempted cast to Int64 is not valid.


For an example of the ValueAsLong property, see the ValueAsBoolean property.


If the XPathNavigator has schema or type information (for example, from an XmlDocument object initialized with an XML schema validating XmlReader), and if the current node is defined as an XML Schema xs:integer type, the ValueAsLong property returns the current node's value as an unboxed Int64 object.

However, if the XPathNavigator does not have any schema or type information, the ValueAsLong property attempts to convert the string value of the current node to a Int64 value, according to the XPath 2.0 casting rules for xs:integer.
