Hi Guys,

Can someone please show me how I can set a  field value of byte or datetime type to Null using Bindingsource. I tried using this approach but it errors out but I do know this works if I was using a SQL Update statement using SQL command tableadapter UPDATE etc.

My current code below doesn't work and I would like to use the bindingsource approach:

              Dim dt As Nullable(Of DateTime) = Nothing
                        Dim cs As Nullable(Of Byte) = Nothing


                        Me.Validate()
                        Me.TestBindingSource.Current("mydate") = dt
                        Me.TestBindingSource.Current("mybytefield") = cs
                        Me.TestBindingSource.EndEdit()
                        Me.TestTableAdapter.Update(Me.TestDataSet.tblTest

Nothing is not the same thing as Null, so putting a variable that is nothing in a field does not work.

Here is how it would be done in straight ADO if we wanted to use a Nullable variable that is empty and assign a Null to a field. I am not sure it would work on a BindingSource however, because I do not use data binding in my code.

If dt.HasValue Then
	 Me.TestBindingSource.Current("mydate") = dt
Else
	 Me.TestBindingSource.Current("mydate") = DBNull.Value
End If
