    Hello CableGuy,

    This works for me....
    Code:
    Sub Globals

    End Sub

    Sub App_Start
       Form1.Show
    End Sub

    Sub Form1_MouseDown (x,y)
     
    If TextBox1.Text="" Then
     
    MsgBox("Works")
     
    End If
    End Sub
    Just add a TextBox1 with no text to From1 and try for yourself.
    I fear that you must be doing something else wrong.

    This works, but a trim would be very handy ;)

    x = strLength (txtString.Text)
    y = " " (lot of space chars)


    if (txtString.Text = "") Or ( subString(txtString.Text,0, x) = subString(y,0,x) ) then String has all spaces or is empty

    Scub

    When I told you how many hours I'm behind my screen.... I never had a PPC but want to archive fishing details (including GPS tracking etc.). Now I have a PPC and B4ppc and want to finish my program. For me it's Work-B4ppc-Sleep and repeating since the last week :sign0148:

    But it's a lot of fun!

    So for all my stupid questions the next few days :sign0013:

    Scub
