if then in MVC


I need to say if the item.ImageName is null or empty display the default image.

not sure what I am doing wrong.

Here's my code.


<img src="@Url.Content("~/Content/UploadedImages/" + String.IsNullOrEmpty(item.ImageName) ? "NO-IMAGE.png" : item.ImageName)" />

I want to do this
if item.ImageName is empty then display the no-image.png otherwise display the image name.

The string concatenation operator has a higher precedence than the ternay opartor does. Try using parentheses.

<img src="@Url.Content("~/Content/UploadedImages/" + (String.IsNullOrEmpty(item.ImageName) ? "NO-IMAGE.png" : item.ImageName))" />
