I am using the Microsoft Validation  Block.   I am using the code below to check that the webpage is valid.  But I only want to check this if a user enters a web page.

<Bindable(True)> _
    <RegexValidator("(http://|)(www\.)?([^\.]+)\.(\w{2}|(com|net|org|edu|int|mil|gov|arpa|biz|aero|name|coop|info|pro|museum))", MessageTemplate:="Please enter a valdi webpage")>
      Public Property WebPage() As String
            Return Me.M_WebPage
        End Get
        Set(ByVal Value As String)
            Me.M_WebPage = Value
        End Set
    End Property

So bind this regex to a text field where the user enters a web page address. Then you'll be able to see if the address is valid.

Sorry I should have worded my question better.   I want to validate the web page ONLY if there is one entered.  I.e  a blank field is also OK.
