Segmented control issue

In a segmented control if nothing is selected the value defaults to empty string! It should ideally default to 'null' as per other controls.
Is this a bug, an oversight?
We currently have to do some front end js to overcome this issue using a ternary to force the value to null if we see empty string! Not ideal

Hi @peter.b we have a request in our backlog to add an option for no default value in the segmented control

In the meantime, I'd use the JS that you already have implemented, or have an event handler to clear the component's value (to null) on page load or as needed:

@Tess thanks
