I'm working on standard page and what is the best way to cast any 0.00 to null check? I have a situation where I want to check to see if the decimal value is 0.00 but is that consider to be a best practice if I have something like this:

if(reading == 0.00) { //its null }
  • Can you please provide more context? Where in the controller/extension are you doing this? – Adrian Larson May 28 '15 at 19:18
  • @AdrianLarson: its more of a generic question or approach then context and I do not have much code to show you other than what I have here... so bascially its a check to see reading is null or not. – Nick Kahn May 28 '15 at 19:21
  • why would you downvote any explanation? – Nick Kahn May 28 '15 at 19:28

    Not I with the downvote. – Adrian Larson May 28 '15 at 19:30

The general verb I tend to for this process is to elide:

public static Decimal elide(Decimal value)
    return (value == 0) ? null : value;
