I am try9ing to see if a list box retuns anything, so that I can send a message tot he user that nothing was found.

I have tried theses
lbPers.items.counts  = 0
lbPers.items = 0
lbpers.itmes.counts = ""

If txtSearch.Text = "" Then
            RegisterClientScriptBlock("showMessage", "<script language=""JavaScript""> alert('Type in a Personnel Name First.'); </script>")
            sql = "Select Distinct strSSN, strName + '|' + Substring(strSSN, 6,9) from tblPermTask where strname like '" & Name & "%' " _
                & "Order by strName + '|' + Substring(strSSN, 6,9), strSSN"
            lbPers.Items.Add(New ListItem("Click Person to Add", "0"))
            buildDD(sql, lbSoldier)
        End If

        If lbPers.Items = 0 Then
            RegisterClientScriptBlock("showMessage", "<script language=""JavaScript""> alert('Personnel does not currently have any Issues.'); </script>")
        End If

        txtSearch.Text = ""
