how to avoid NULL value in objective c

Please consider this code:

 - (void)viewDidLoad
        [super viewDidLoad];
        // Do any additional setup after loading the view from its nib.

        NSURL *url = [NSURL URLWithString:@"http://localhost/faq.php?faqType=2"]; // Modify this to 
        NSString *jsonreturn = [[NSString alloc] initWithContentsOfURL:url]; // Pulls the URL
        NSLog(@"jsonreturn=%@",jsonreturn); // Look at the console and you can see what the restults are
        NSData *jsonData = [jsonreturn dataUsingEncoding:NSUTF32BigEndianStringEncoding];
        NSError *error = nil;

        // In "real" code you should surround this with try and catch
        NSDictionary *dict = [[CJSONDeserializer deserializer] deserializeAsDictionary:jsonData error:&error];

        if (dict)
            rows = [[dict objectForKey:@"faq"] retain];
        [jsonreturn release];    

- (UITableViewCell *)tableView:(UITableView *)tableView cellForRowAtIndexPath:(NSIndexPath *)indexPath 

        // Configure the cell.
        static NSString *CellIdentifier = @"Cell";

        UITableViewCell *cell = [tableView dequeueReusableCellWithIdentifier:CellIdentifier];
        if (cell == nil) {
            cell = [[[UITableViewCell alloc] initWithStyle:UITableViewCellStyleValue1 reuseIdentifier:CellIdentifier] autorelease];

        NSDictionary *dict1 = [rows objectAtIndex:indexPath.row];
        NSLog(@"%@", dict1);
        cell.textLabel.text = [dict1 objectForKey:@"faqQues"];

//if it is not getting NULL value then UItableView is ok
{"faq":[{"faqQues":"this is mr.mack?"},{"faqQues":"is he good man?"}]}

//but if the data is like NULL 

    {"faq":[{"faqQues":"this is mr.mack?"},{"faqQues":null}]}  // then it is creating EXEC_BAD_ACCESS error, 

so how to avoid NULL or check null value, or how can i fix this issue?


You can query the value before using it.

if ([dict objectForKey:@"faqQues"] == [NSNull null]) {
    // value is null, use your own value here
} else {
    // good value to use

You can also do this while enumerating as well.

for (id value in dict) {
    if (value == [NSNull null]) {
        // null
