hello everyone,

my query is that can timestamp take null value??

suppose i have a date combobox that is initially set to null value.
if someone doesn't provide any value in the datecombobox and leaves it null then will this statement run?[size=12]








please suggest me some method how can i provide null value or empty value to datecombobox and be able to compile it successfully.

thanks.

Hi,

I'm not sure if I understand all the implications but I think this should work.



For code readibility you could expand that in a full if statement

I don't think it's startDateCombo that will be null but startDateCombo.getDate. So:
Note that I have chosen to make the entire Timestamp null rather than give it a time of 0.

we can provide the default value for the comboBox with current date , if in case no value is being provided.
