Private Sub btnSubmit_Click(sender As Object, e As EventArgs) Handles btnSubmit.Click
      if txtResolution.text = String.empty() Then
          MessageBox.Show("Please enter a resolution", "No Resolution Entered", MessageBoxButtons.OK, MessageBoxIcon.Error);
      Else
          <Process Form...>
      End If

when I moved your code in my Visual Studio, somehow, I have error under String.Empty() and MessageBox

String.Empty() - Error 100 Argument not specified for parameter 'index' of 'Public ReadOnly Default Property Chars(index As Integer) As Char'.      

MessageBox - Error      101 'MessageBox' is not declared. It may be inaccessible due to its protection level.      

What happened?  This is asp.net web application.

Sorry, try changing the sub to Public.

You said it was vb.net

What does it mean to be "Always On"?

Is your cloud always on? With an Always On cloud you won't have to worry about downtime for maintenance or software application code updates, ensuring that your bottom line isn't affected.

String.Empty()

Since this is asp.net, not vb.net, you'll have to use javascript alert() instead of MessageBox
