Do not update if no value in input or update as NULL to Date field IF empty

Hello,
I have a simple input using Jquery Datepicker, MySQL Date field with a NULL allowed.

Can't get a blank entry to leave the NULL or Update as NULL when no data / values is selected / present.

Tried:
$UpdateQuery->bindColumn("birthday", "t", "".((isset($_POST["datepicker"]))?$_POST["datepicker"]:"") ."", NULL);

$UpdateQuery->bindColumn("birthday", "t", "".((isset($_POST["datepicker"]))?$_POST["datepicker"]:"") ."", "WA_IGNORE");

$UpdateQuery->bindColumn("birthday", "t", "".((isset($_POST["datepicker"]))?$_POST["datepicker"]:"") ."", "WA_NULL");

Everytime the DB sets "1969-12-31" as the value when the field is empty.


Anyway to leave the Default NULL alone unless there really is a value being set?

It looks like there is a bug in the code.

Update this section in the queryobj.php file:

php:
$paramValue = strtotime($paramValue);

        if ($hasTime) {
          $paramValue = date('Y-m-d H:i:s',$paramValue);
        } else {
          $paramValue = date('Y-m-d',$paramValue);
        }


and wrap it in an IF statement like:

php:
if ($paramValue) {

          $paramValue = strtotime($paramValue);
          if ($hasTime) {
            $paramValue = date('Y-m-d H:i:s',$paramValue);
          } else {
            $paramValue = date('Y-m-d',$paramValue);
          }
                }



The code that we have to update the syntax of date columns to a format that MySQL recognizes is still running even when no value is entered and causing this problem.
