Hi,

I have the following DataBinding Expressions:  "<%#Eval("LocationCity")%>", "<%#Eval("LocationState")%>" & "<%#Eval("LocationZip")%>".  How can I check if <%#Eval("LocationCity")%> is empty or blank?  In other words, I don' t want to show the comma (,) when <%#Eval("LocationCity")%> is empty.  I tried "<%#if(Eval("LocationCity") != null)%>", it didn't work.

Please help. Thanks.


<asp:DataList 
            ID="dlLocations" 
            CssClass="dataView" 
            AlternatingItemStyle-BackColor="#F2F9FF" 
            BorderStyle="Solid" 
            BorderWidth="1px" 
            GridLines="Horizontal" 
            HorizontalAlign="Left" 
            Runat="server">
            <ItemTemplate>
             <%#Eval("LocationName")%><br />
              <%#Eval("LocationCity")%>,  <%#Eval("LocationState")%> <%#Eval("LocationZip")%>
            </ItemTemplate>
        </asp:DataList>
