Show empty field if content is "00.00.0000"


How can I pass "datetime" to the database with "NULL". So that "0000-00-00 00:00:00" is not displayed as value.

The sql column is not nullable. The value must be "1000-01-01 00:00:00" so that nothing is displayed in the frontend.

How can I do this via PHP

create_field_info(TABLE_VD_ART, 'erscheinungsdatum', 'vd_date_to_xtc_date')


The solution was to tackle the "function" of "vd_date_to_xtc_date".

function vd_date_to_xtc_date($input_date, $input_format = 'd.m.Y', $output_format = 'Y-m-d', $add_seconds = 0) {
    if (!$input_date)
        return "1000-01-01 00:00:00";
