JsonValueExtensionsGetDateTimeOrDefault(JsonValue, DateTime, NullableDateTimeKind, JsonValueType) Method

Gets the specified JsonValue as a DateTime value if expectedType is Undefined or matches the Type property of the specified json parameter and it can be converted to DateTime; otherwise, returns defaultValue. The actual format is attempted to be auto detected. If you know exact format use the other GetDateTimeOrDefault overloads.

	JsonValueType expectedType = JsonValueType.Undefined


json  JsonValue
The JsonValue to be converted to DateTime.

The value to be returned if the conversion fails. This parameter is optional.

desiredKind  NullableDateTimeKind  (Optional)

The expected Type of the specified json parameter, or Undefined to allow any type. This parameter is optional.
Default value: Undefined.

Return Value

A DateTime value if json could be converted; otherwise, defaultValue.
