jQuery Chart Empty Points

The Shield UI charting component has full support for empty, or null points. Null points are commonly declared in the underlying datasource as follows:

dataSeries: [
         collectionAlias: "Weekly Report",
         seriesType: 'area',
         data: [233, 123, 345, 34, null, 56, 23]

One can choose how this null value from the underlying datasource is interpreted. The value can either be skipped, resulting in a gap in the graph. Or, the two adjacent points can be joined together, creating the visual effect as though there is a valid data entry. This is handled by enabling the drawNullValues property.
