HI all,

I have a list wich I need to check if it contains any items or not. If it does not I need to show a warning that it has to have at least one item.

How to check this?
Probably pretty simple but can't seem to find it right now...

You did say what kind of list you are referring to so here are a couple of examples

List<string> list1 = new List<string>();
if (list1.Count == 0) { /* Display Error */ }

string[] list2 = new string[] { "", "", "" };
if (list2.Length == 0) { /* Display Error */ }

ListBox lb = new ListBox();
if (lb.Items.Count == 0) { /* Display Error */ }

Hi,

Indeed I forgot to tell that. It's the first one.
Thought it was going to be simple, about the same as checking if a DataSet has rows...

Anyway thx for putting my nose on it :)

Yeah I know sry.
 I should have split the points but tbh I looked over your answer, as stupid as it may sound...

You've helped me before so I feel a little bad about it...

Greetings.
