A null value is a value that is not assigned to a column. It could be 0 or empty. I’ve written about the different null types here.
Basically, SQL doesn’t have an equivalent to null in PostgreSQL. We would need to write our own column type in order to enforce this constraint, but we can use a nullable type like Null, or use the Null column type in Postgres.
Null values can be a pain to deal with in PostgreSQL, and I use Null in the sample apps I show on my blog, but this is a common pattern. It is important to understand the difference between null and nothing.
Null is just a special character for nullable types. Null is a character that doesn’t have a single or zero value, which is a strange and confusing thing to find out, so I take it you didn’t add it to your column types. Null is an element with many non-zero values and null is a special character for nullable types. Null doesn’t have two zero values and null is a non-zero value.
Null allows you to store values that are nothing, null, or false. They are similar to the null keyword in C#. This allows you to do things like convert a null to a string that is not null. It allows you to convert a string that is null to null. It also allows you to convert a string that is false to a string that is null. None of these things are really significant for the purposes of this blog, but they are important to understand.
The null constraint is a very important constraint and I hate to say it, but the null constraint is the most important thing about C#. It is the base for almost everything else. I will not discuss C#’s nullable types because that is not for the purpose of this blog. I will discuss C#’s nullable types because they have a bit more significance than they seem to have.
It is also important to understand that the null constraint does not hold for all nullable types. It is most useful to understand the way Cs nullable types work and how they differ from their non-nullable counterparts.
nullable types are those types which can be assigned the null value. Since Cs nullable types are only assignable to null values, they cannot be assignable to any other values. Therefore, nullable types are the lowest level of the C hierarchy. The null constraint states that a nullable type is not assignable to any other values. If a nullable type is assignable to a value, we can’t assign it to a nullable type.
Nullable types are one of those things that you can learn to take for granted until they bite you in the ass. If you think about them like this, nullable types are a lot like nulls. They both have a null value, which means they can never be assigned to any other values. But they can be assignable to null values, which means we can assign them to null values. This is very important when you think about it.
There are a couple of ways we could go about enforcing this. One is the null-collapsing rule. If you have an array of null values, and have a method that takes an array and returns an array that contains its contents, you can throw the array at a null value. This is the way that null-collapsing works.
