Check to see if text is "null"?

  • Hey all. I was struck by inspiration and have a neat game idea that I think I'll be able to make using the free version of C2 (I hope).

    I've run into a bit of a snag though. At the start, the player needs to enter in their name. It is crucial that they enter a name of some kind, and not just leave the field blank.

    How do I check to see the input of the textbox, and have the game give an error when the value is "null", or nothing?

    Thanks.

  • Check the value of Text (Text.text) and evaluate if "" (Blank).

    Here is CAPX CAPX

    EDIT: Just saw the .CAPX file, thanks.

  • Look at previous post again - I added CAPX.   You would want to set up a global variable that is triggered when text is entered into the Text Box. And not let them press the button until that variable is toggled on.

  • If whipped that capx up real fast. If you want I can redo it with a button and variable to show how. Or you could try and let me know... <img src="smileys/smiley2.gif" border="0" align="middle" />

    Good idea, I'll try that. I was actually able to find a work around, but your way is better, thanks.

    I was finally able to figure it out. Thank you so much for your help.

  • NO problem.
