Description

Description:
A non-existent Diary Record. To compare non-existent objects use isNull or isEqualTo:
diaryRecordNull == diaryRecordNull; // false isNull diaryRecordNull; // true diaryRecordNull isEqualTo diaryRecordNull; // true
Before Arma 3 v2.00, isNull did not work with the diary record type and diaryRecordNull did not exist.

In order to verify a null record, it is possible to create a variable and compare against it:

private _diaryRecordNull = objNull createDiaryRecord []; private _createdRecord = player createDiaryRecord ["Diary", ["Title", "Description"]]; if (_createdRecord isEqualTo _diaryRecordNull) then { hint "Failed"; };

diaryRecordNull

Examples

Example 1:
isNull diaryRecordNull; // true
Example 2:
isNull (objNull createDiaryRecord ["Diary", ["Title", "Text"]]); // true - objNull cannot take diary records
Example 3:
str diaryRecordNull; // "No diary record"
Example 4:
private _diaryRecord = diaryRecordNull; if (damage player > 0.5) then { _diaryRecord = player createDiaryRecord ["Diary", ["Heal yourself", "Ask a medic"]]; }; if (not isNull _diaryRecord) then { hint "Diary record added."; };
