XmlConvertCF 1.0, ECMA 1.0

System.Xml (system.xml.dll)class

This type is used to convert XML elements into other, non-XML types, such as CLR objects. In particular, it is used to convert XSD types into CLR types, for easy transformation of schema-valid XML documents into .NET objects and back again. It is also used within a variety of other areas, including ADO.NET (for automatic conversion of XML documents into relational tables and rows).

For the most part, .NET programmers use this type indirectly as part of the .NET Web Services stack or else directly in order to convert between XML documents and CLR objects (as part of a home-grown XML-to-RDBMS system, for example).

Note that although a constructor is provided, all methods of any interest are declared static and therefore require no instance to use. In essence, this type is a collection of C-style functions.
