I would like to know if there is a method or something that I could inherit that would tell me if my object is null or not?  i.e. all of the properties are empty and have not been set.

If an object is null, you cannot access its methods, properties or attributes

In order to know if an object is null you would do

object myObj;

// Code

if( myObj is null )
{
    // myObj is null
}
else
{
    // myObj is not null
}

Hope this helps
