Primitive Data types

Data Type Range Description
Binary Binary data, an array of bytes.
Boolean true/false true, false
Byte 0 to 255 Unsigned 8-bit integer
Char A Unicode character Represented as an unsigned 16-bit integer 
Date January 1, 0001 to December 31, 9999 Represents a date.
DateTime 00:00:00.0000000, January 1, 0001 to
23:59:59.9999999, December 31, 9999
Represents an instant in time, typically expressed as a date and time of day. With a millisecond precision.
Decimal -79228162514264337593543950335 to 79228162514264337593543950335
(28-29 significant digits)
The decimal keyword indicates a 128-bit data type. Compared to floating-point types, the decimal type has more precision and a smaller range, which makes it appropriate for financial and monetary calculations.

±5.0 × 10−324 to ±1.7 × 10308
(15-16 significant digits)

Stores a 64-bit floating-point value.
Float -3.4 × 1038 to +3.4 × 1038
(15-16 significant digits)
Stores a 32-bit floating-point values
Guid 16 byte identifier Represents a globally unique identifier (GUID).
Int16 -32,768 to 32,767 Signed 16-bit integer
Int32 -2,147,483,648 to 2,147,483,647 Signed 32-bit integer
Int64 -9,223,372,036,854,775,808 to 9,223,372,036,854,775,807 Signed 64-bit integer
SByte -128 to 127 Signed 8-bit integer
String The string type represents a sequence of zero or more Unicode characters
Time 00:00:00.0000000 to 23:59:59.9999999 Represents a time, with a millisecond precision.
TimeSpan -10,675,199 days to +10,675,199 days. TimeSpan represents a duration of time, it can be negative or positive and has a millisecond precision.
UInt16 0 to 65,535 Unsigned 16-bit integer
UInt32 0 to 4,294,967,295 Unsigned 32-bit integer
UInt64 0 to 18,446,744,073,709,551,615 Unsigned 64-bit integer

Complex Data Types

Data Type Description
Node A structured data container (i.e. an XML node), can also contain child Nodes.
This structured data comes from a source component (XML, DB, data source).

Data Type Groups

The following types represent types of data, Any may be any type at all, Atomic maybe any primitive type, and Numeric may contain any of the numeric types. They are typically used as inputs on components where the component can deal with a number of input data types.

Data Type Allowable Types
Any Binary, Byte, Char, Date, DateTime, Decimal, Double, Float, Guid, Int16, Int32, Int64, Node, SByte, String, Time, TimeSpan, UInt16, UInt32, UInt64
Atomic Binary, Byte, Char, Date, DateTime, Decimal, Double, Float, Guid, Int16, Int32, Int64, SByte, String, Time, TimeSpan, UInt16, UInt32, UInt64
Numeric Byte, Decimal, Double, Float, Int16, Int32, Int64, SByte, UInt16, UInt32, UInt64
