    How to check if a DateTime datatype is present or not?

    Hi all, I'm trying to write a condition where if a piece of content doesn't have a startDate, it will not display the date and only the title. However I can't seem how to figure out how to identify if a DateTime datatype is present or not. All the test examples I've used do not have startDate and are all showing as "01 January 0001"

    Any ideas?

      @foreach (var item in trainingCourses)
            {
                if (item.IsNull(item.startDate))
                    {
                    <li>
                        <a href="@item.Url"><h3>@item.Name</h3></a>
                    </li>    
                    }                          
                else
                    {
                    <li>
                        <a href="@item.Url"><h3>@item.Name</h3>
                        <p>@(item.GetPropertyValue<DateTime>("startDate").ToString("dd MMMM yyyy"))</p></a>
                    </li>
                    }
    
            }
    

    Thanks,

    David

    Hi David,

    Does the following work:

    @foreach (var item in trainingCourses)
    {
        if (item.GetPropertyValue<DateTime>("startDate") == null || item.GetPropertyValue<DateTime>("startDate") == DateTime.MinValue)
        {
            <li>
                <a href="@item.Url"><h3>@item.Name</h3></a>
            </li>
        }
        else
        {
            <li>
                <a href="@item.Url">
                    <h3>@item.Name</h3>
                    <p>@(item.GetPropertyValue<DateTime>("startDate").ToString("dd MMMM yyyy"))</p>
                </a>
            </li>
        }
    
    }
    

    Thanks

    Paul
