System.JSON.Readers TJsonReader


Reads the next JSON token and interprets it as a DateTime value.

Instead of Read, you may alternatively use a different reading method if you can anticipate the type of the next token.

There is no standard for dates in JSON, so there are multiple possible formats of dates representation. Using ReadAsDateTime is a solution to read dates in JSON when you can anticipate the token type.

ReadAsDateTime function reads the next token and returns a TDateTime value. ReadAsDateTime calls ReadAsDateTimeInternal.

If the token cannot be interpreted as the expected type, an exception raises and provides the path to the token, the number of the line and the position within that line.
