Hi,

I am having problems with my IF statement and wanted to check if I have nest it correctly. as regardless if CheckIFNull is true, it still goes ahead with the rest of the code!

Regards,

protected void btnPrint_Click(object sender, EventArgs e)
    {
        if (opProStatusDrop.SelectedValue == "Closed")
        {
            CheckIFNull();
 
            if (chkFQC.Checked == false || chkIR.Checked == false)
            {
                lblStatus.Text = "You have not confirmed final quota counts or final response rate";
            }
 
            else
            {
                updateData();
                sendMail();
                hardCopy();
                excelFile();
                DelLockSession();
                Response.Redirect("SessPrint.aspx");
            }
        }
        if (opProStatusDrop.SelectedValue == "Open - complete")
        {
            CheckIFNull();
 
            if (chkFQC.Checked == false || chkIR.Checked == false)
            {
                lblStatus.Text = "You have not confirmed final quota counts or final response rate";
            }

                Response.Redirect("SessPrint.aspx");
            }
        }
        if (opProStatusDrop.SelectedValue == "Open - field")
        {
            CheckIFTBC();
        }
        else
        {
            updateData();
            sendMail2();
            hardCopy();
            excelFile();
            DelLockSession();
            Response.Redirect("SessPrint.aspx");
        }

CheckIFNull();

what does this code do? It just calls some procedure, in which, I presume, you have some validation code, but NO value is returned. It should look something like

bool CheckIfNull()
{
    if (some condition)
    {
        return true;
    }
    else
    {
        return false;
    }
}

and then in your code it would look something like

if (CheckIFNull())
{
    // code to execute
}

or

if (!CheckIFNull())
{
    // code to execute
}

Goran

This way you have it at the moment, it only calls the procedure, and continues with execution.

It is running through all of the code because there is nothing telling it not to.

If the rest of the code relies on CheckIfNulls result then you need to make sure that there is a return which can be used as a breaking point.  EG:

bool myResult = CheckIfNull()  // where CheckIfNull has a return type of bool

if (myResult == true)
{
      // Whatever you have checked is null
      // Do whatever you want to handle that
}
else
{
      // Its not null
      // Do whatever you want to handle the result
}

That way it will only continue through the code when you get the result that you actually want.

Is there any chance you can provide me an example code using one of my methods?

As I am looking at the guidlines you set but I do not understand.

change CheckIFNull like this:

(you would make similar changes for


    bool CheckIFNull()
    {
        bool isValid = true;
        DataTable dt = new DataTable();
        string selectSQL;
 
        selectSQL = "SELECT * FROM tblProCom ";
 
        selectSQL += "WHERE Pid='" + txtPid.Text + "'";
 
        OleDbConnection objConn = new OleDbConnection("Provider=Microsoft.Jet.OleDb.4.0;Data Source=" + Server.MapPath("App_Data/ProCom.mdb"));
        OleDbCommand objCmd = new OleDbCommand(selectSQL, objConn);
 
        OleDbDataAdapter obj = new OleDbDataAdapter();
        obj.SelectCommand = objCmd;
 
        obj.Fill(dt);
 
        for (int i = 0; i < dt.Columns.Count; i++)
        {
            if (dt.Rows[0][i].ToString().Trim() == string.Empty || dt.Rows[0][i].ToString().Trim() == "Please select" || dt.Rows[0][i] == null || dt.Rows[0][i] == "" || dt.Rows[0][i].ToString().Trim() == "TBC" || dt.Rows[0][i].ToString().Trim() == "tbc")
            {
                lblStatus.Text = "You have not completed all the fields or TBC fields are outstanding";
                isValid = fals;

                isValid = false;

            }
        }
        return isValid;

then chagle the main procedure, like this:
 
            if (CheckIFNull() == true)
            {
 
             if (chkFQC.Checked == false || chkIR.Checked == false)
             {
                 lblStatus.Text = "You have not confirmed final quota counts or final response rate";
             }
 
             else
             {
                 updateData();
                 sendMail();
                 hardCopy();
                 excelFile();
                 DelLockSession();
                 Response.Redirect("SessPrint.aspx");
             }

What do you mean?  Do you mean it does this line but doesn't display your error message?
if (dt.Rows[0][i].ToString().Trim() == string.Empty || dt.Rows[0][i].ToString().Trim() == "Please select" || dt.Rows[0][i] == null || dt.Rows[0][i] == "" || dt.Rows[0][i].ToString().Trim() == "TBC" || dt.Rows[0][i].ToString().Trim() == "tbc")

A side comment, this kind of lines:

if (chkFQC.Checked == false || chkIR.Checked == false)

could be simplified as:

if (!chkFQC.Checked || !chkIR.Checked)
