check whether a text field contains text other than the default entry

Dear Experts:

below java script resets the text field (Config.Remarks)to its default value ('Please enter your own text') asking the user beforehand if he/she really wants to do this.

The script works just fine. I wonder whether the java script could be expanded by checking first whether text has already been entered and if not a MsgBox has to tell that no individual text has been entered so far. In the latter case the scripting has to be exited.

Help is much appreciated. Thank you very much in advance.

Regards, Andreas

var cMessage = "Would you like to delete your remarks completely?";

var cMyTitle = "Deletion of the Text Field 'Remarks'";

// Display Alert Box with Question Icon
// Normally the question icon is used in conjunction with the
// Yes/No Button, which returns 3(No) or 4(Yes)
var nRtn = app.alert({cMsg:cMessage, cTitle:cMyTitle,
nIcon:2, // Question Icon
nType:2 // Yes/No Buttons

if(nRtn == 4)
{// Yes Selected - Continue Process
// Place Yes Code Here

Test a value of the field. Display the dialog box only if it is different from 'Please enter your own text'.
