Enable/Disable Button Based On Empty TextBoxes

I have a form that has a button on it with 2 textboxes.  Here is what I need to happen.

I need for the button to be disabled if both textboxes are empty.  If the user clears out one and one still has data then still disabled.  

Only enable when both boxes have data

You need to add code to the textchanged event of both text boxes. This code simply needs be like the code below. Then make the button disabled by default if the text boxes always start out blank or force that code to run once at the forms load if the text boxes can be one way or the other.

Keep in mind that the TextChanged event does not fire if you programmatically change the text so if you do that, you must manually call the code below.




If String.IsNullOrEmpty(Textbox1.Text) Or String.IsNullOrEmpty(Textbox2.Text) Then
  Button1.Enabled = False
Else
  Button1.Enabled = True
End If

Try this and disable the command1 (command1.enable = false):
Private Sub Text1_Change()
  If Text1.Text <> "" And Text2.Text <> "" Then
    Command1.Enable = True
  Else
    Command1.Enable = False
  End If
End Sub
 
Private Sub Text2_Change()
  If Text1.Text <> "" And Text2.Text <> "" Then
    Command1.Enable = True
  Else
    Command1.Enable = False
  End If
End Sub

Create a function like this as given below

and put in following events

textBox1_TextChanged

textBox2_TextChanged

Form1_Load


private void checkdata()
 
{
 
if (textBox1.Text.Trim().Equals("") || textBox2.Text.Trim().Equals(""))
  button1.Enabled = false;
            
else

Here is one way of doing it

  Private Sub TextChange(ByVal sender As Object, ByVal e As System.EventArgs) Handles TextBox1.TextChanged, TextBox2.TextChanged
        If Me.TextBox1.Text.Length = 0 Or Me.TextBox2.Text.Length = 0 Then
            Me.Button1.Enabled = False
        Else
            Me.Button1.Enabled = True
        End If
    End Sub
