Synopsis
INPUTNULL char
Arguments
char An expression that resolves to a single character.
Description
The INPUTNULL statement designates a character to represent the null string. If you specify this character to an INPUT statement, it is saved to the variable as a null string (a string of length 0). This character remains as the designated null string character for the current process until you reset it by specifying INPUTNULL "".
INPUTNULL only affects the INPUT statement. It has no effect on the IN statement or the KEYIN function.
Example
The following example designates the ^ character to represent the null string for INPUT:
INPUTNULL "^"
INPUT @(1,23) inval
?^
PRINT "Value =":inval
Value =
PRINT LEN(inval)
0
