Class XdmAtomicValue


public class XdmAtomicValue
extends XdmItem

The class XdmAtomicValue represents an item in an XDM sequence that is an atomic value. The value may belong to any of the 19 primitive types defined in XML Schema, or to a type derived from these primitive types, or to the XDM-specific type xs:untypedAtomic.

Note that there is no guarantee that every XdmValue comprising a single atomic value will be an instance of this class. To force this, use the Simplify property of the XdmValue.

Parameters:

lexicalForm - The string representation of the value (any value that is acceptable in the lexical space, as defined by XML Schema Part 2). Whitespace normalization as defined by the target type will be applied to the value.
type - The type given as an XdmAtomicType

Property Detail

PrimitiveTypeName

public QName PrimitiveTypeName {get; }

Get the name of the primitive type of the value

Returns:

The primitive type of the value, as a QName. This will be the name of one of the primitive types defined in XML Schema Part 2, or the XPath-defined type xs:untypedAtomic. For the purposes of this method, xs:integer is considered to be a primitive type.

TypeName

public QName TypeName {get; }

Get the name of the value's XDM type

Returns:

The type of the value, as a QName.

Value

public object Value {get; }

Get the value as a CLI object of the nearest equivalent type.

The return type is as follows:

  • xs:string - String
  • xs:integer - Long
  • xs:decimal - Decimal
  • xs:double - Double
  • xs:float - Float
  • xs:boolean - Bool
  • xs:QName - QName
  • xs:anyURI - Uri
  • xs:untypedAtomic - String
  • wrapped external object - the original external object
  • Other types - currently String, but this may change in the future

Returns:

The value converted to the most appropriate CLI type

Method Detail

AsBoolean

public bool AsBoolean()
throws
InvalidCastException

Get the value converted to a boolean using the XPath casting rules.

Returns:

The result of converting to a boolean (Note: this is not the same as the effective boolean value).

Throws:

InvalidCastException - If the value cannot be cast to an xs:boolean

public decimal AsDecimal()
throws
InvalidCastException

Get the value converted to a decimal using the XPath casting rules.

InvalidCastException - If the value cannot be cast to an xs:decimal, or converted to a .NET primitive decimal.

AsDouble

public double AsDouble()
throws
InvalidCastException

Get the value converted to a double using the XPath casting rules.

If the value is a string, the XSD 1.1 rules are used, which means that the string "+INF" is recognised.

Returns:

The result of converting to a double

The result of the equality comparison, using the rules of the op:is-same-key() comparison used for comparing key values in maps.

Determine whether the item is an atomic value

Returns:

True (the item is an atomic value).

MakeAtomicValue

public static XdmAtomicValue MakeAtomicValue(object value)
throws
ArgumentException

Create an atomic value of a type appropriate to the supplied value.

The supplied value must be one of the following:
