P: 53
How to check if the text box is empty in C#?? I have to display an error box if the textbox is empty. I am trying this way,but no results. Thank you for the help.

private void Save_Click(object sender, EventArgs e)

if (textBox1.Text == String.Empty)

errortextBox2.Visible = true;
errorgroupBox2.Visible = true;
errortextBox3.Visible = true;
errorbutton1.Visible = true;

string itemToAdd = textBox1.Text;

If the textbox is truely empty, that is how to check for it, I suspect your problem might lie elsewhere.
Is this a web application? Are you remember to check for isPostback in your form_load?
