Hello all,

I have a property that I want to see if the value is 0 make it null.  How do I do that?  I have the one past making the value = 0 when null but then I need to revert back.

This is the first way making it 0:
 BusinessGroupID = entity.BusinessGroupID.GetValueOrDefault(0),

Need to go the other way now.

I think what you need is something like:

C#:
BusinessGroupID = entity.BusinessGroupID.GetValueOrDefault(0)==0?null:entity.BusinessGroupID

Open in new window


VB:
BusinessGroupID = If(entity.BusinessGroupID.GetValueOrDefault(0)=0,System.DBNull.Value,entity.BusinessGroupID)

Open in new window
