View Full Version : Ext reads json false response as string text

Hello and happy new year everyone.

The problem is that I am using an API with Ext direct and I do not have much control of the response. I am getting a json response and all the normal fields are with double quotes.

e.g. "country":"USA"

The ones that are NULL the api sends them back as:


"birthday":false

How can I tell ExtJS to ignore those values and leave then as null, because it tries
to put the string "false" in the date textfield, and I am getting validation error:
"false is not a valid date - it must be in the format m-d-Y"

What happens if you send back an empty string?
