When I'm working with an ID field on my page, I want to have it saved as -1 if it's not ever been defined as a valid ID. But when I go to save the values to the table, if they're -1, I want to save them as System.DBNull.Value.

How can I create a function to return the valid value as an integer if it's not -1, but if it is -1, to return System.DBNull.Value, so that it saves properly to the table?
