Defined in:

Overview

A non-null type modifies another type.

Non-null types can be created with ! (InnerType!) or BaseType#to_non_null_type (InnerType.to_non_null_type)

For return types, it says that the returned value will always be present.

(If the application fails to return a value, InvalidNullError will be passed to Schema#type_error.)

For input types, it says that the incoming value must be provided by the query.

(If a value isn't provided, Query::VariableValidationError will be raised).

Given a non-null type, you can always get the underlying type with BaseType::ModifiesAnotherType#unwrap.

Examples:

A field which always returns an error

field :items, !ItemType
# or
field :items, ItemType.to_non_null_type

A field which requires a string input

field :newNames do
  # ...
  argument :values, !types.String
  # or
  argument :values, types.String.to_non_null_type
end
