How do I write code to check for empty drop-down list box
Posted on 2008-11-19
I need to verify that a value has been entered into a drop down box on my infopath form. I am brand new to infopath and c# so please excuse my ignorance.
What i have is a button that submits drop down/text box values to a sharepoint list. I have tried to use the standard 'Data Validation' on the drop down fields themselves, but the c# code executes first before the built in 'Data Validation' goes to check the value.
Basically I need an example of c# syntax in infopath that will check for a null value in the drop down boxes.
Here is some pseudocode of what im after
if (dropdown1 is empty) then
stop executing code and set focus to dropdown1
process rest of code
if anyone could provide an example that would be great.
