Hello Experts
I am trying to check if the field is empty using the statement below

If (OT.DecMessage = "" Or OT.DecMessage Is Nothing )Then
    pnlOTDecMessagee.Visible = False
End if

But when I have a carriage return (blank lines) in the Message, its not returning True.

How can I include this in my condition please?

Thanks
S
