Right now my FileUpload is being validated to check for the correct file extension, but I would also like to make sure that the field is not empty. How would I modify the below code to make sure that the field cannot be left empty? Thanks.

<asp:RegularExpressionValidator id="FileUpLoadValidator2" runat="server" ErrorMessage="    Upload .png files only."
ValidationExpression="^(([a-zA-Z]:)|(\\{2}\w+)\$?)(\\(\w[\w].*))(.png|.PNG|.png|.PNG)$"
ControlToValidate="FileUpload1">
</asp:RegularExpressionValidator>
