I would like to make a static class that check to see if  a checkbox has something in it or not. And if  it does, I want to execute my code.  I just don’t know how to check the textbox

public class costCL
{
    
    public double rs;
   
    public void Add(double c, double s, double st)
	{
        if(don't know what goes here)
            double ftax = 5.00; 
            
            rs = Math.Round(c + s + st + ftax, 2);
    }

You can use the IsNullOrEmpty method to check the value.

If Not String.IsNullOrEmpty(TextBox.Text) then
execute your code

Hey, if you want to restrict the user to enter the value in textbox then you can use regular expression n your .aspx page
Try it your self here

Or you can check it by using java-script


function msgBox(objtxt)

{
var objtxt=document.getElementById('<%=TextBox2.ClientId%>');
if (objtxt.value.length == 0)

{
alert('TextBox shouldnot be empty');

objtxt.focus();

}

}



<asp:TextBox ID="TextBox2" onkeyup ="msgBox(this);" runat="server"></asp:TextBox><br />
