Another Way of Expressing the Null String

Recommended Posts

BACKGROUND:  I would like to use the following HTTP Request query string, but substitute the empty quotes with something like null or undefined.  What are acceptable non-values in this instance?

Every value in a URL or form is a string, so an empty string makes sense if there's no value.  If an empty string is a valid value and you need another one, then pick another value that you want to use to represent that or maybe just remove those items from the URL altogether.

It's not common to have single quotes in a URL at all though.

OK.  I will try both ways.  If I cannot simply drop the parameter, then I will try as davej has suggested and put nothing as the value.
