WordPress 3.05 - How to check if a sidebar has widgets?

Hi,
How do we check if a sidebar has widgets? I just want to check without calling it.
In general the following is used to check and call:
if (!function_exists('dynamic_sidebar') || !dynamic_sidebar(2)) :

Open in new window


My requirement is just to check and not call.

Please guide.
Thanks
