  • Edit List Box

    Forgive me if this has been answered before (or if it's painfully obvious):

    I have several edit list boxes which are initially blank; the user fills in each one, which supplies the values for some variables on the next page (user's name, etc.) I'd like to check the boxes before displaying the next page, to make sure each box was filled in and not skipped over accidentally. I could use a "String - Find" action, or an "IF %variable% =" statement to see if the boxes are still blank, but I'm not sure what to put in those actions. What is the value if the boxes are left blank? I can set a value beforehand, but I think it changes if the boxes are left blank? Thanks for your expertise. pj

    Hi - the value would be blank. Anything contained between quotes is the value, thus:

    Value of "" = blank

    Value of "123" = 123

    So you want to check for a value of: ""
