    Hello,

    I need to check if a textbox is returning an empty value.
    When I use Response.Write(myTextBox.Text) I get the written value.

    However, when I use the code:
    If myTextBox.Text Is Nothing Then
    Response.Write("Empty")
    End If

    "Empty" doesn't show even if I don't write anything in the text box.
    Am I doing something wrong?

    Thanks,
    Miguel

    You use "Nothing" to see if an object exists or not.
    To see if your TextBox has something, check it's Length property. If it's 0
    then you don't have anything in the TextBox.
