By admin - Last updated: Wednesday, March 12, 2008 - Save & Share - Leave a Comment

Return null if the value type object has default value.

public static T? GetValueOrNull<t>( this T value ) where T : struct
{
   if( value.Equals( default( T ) ) )
      return new Nullable<t>();
   else
      return value;
}

// Usage
int i = default(int); //0
int? i = i.GetValueOrNull();
Console.Writeline( i.HasValue );

// output: false
