See Also: Time and Date Functions

Purpose

Return Type

Boolean

Syntax

(IsNullDateTime( {DateTime} ))

Where:

Example

Procedure TestIsNullDateTime

    DateTime dtVal

    

    If (IsNullDateTime(dtVal)) Begin

        Showln "It's originally a null DateTime"

    End

    Else Begin

        Showln "It's originally not a null DateTime"

    End

 

    Showln "Setting DateTime variable to current local time"        

    Move (CurrentDateTime()) to dtVal

    

    If (IsNullDateTime(dtVal)) Begin

        Showln "It's still a null DateTime"

    End

    Else Begin

        Showln "Now it's no longer a null DateTime"

    End

End_Procedure

  

Notes

IsNullDateTime returns true if the value of the DateTime argument is null. This is the recommended way to test if a DateTime variable is "empty" (i.e., null).
