Textbox validation

Textbox validation

Textbox validation

Hi guys I'm new to visual C++
so I'm looking for some pointers

can someone tell what is wrong with this statement
String^ checkName = firstname_txt->Text;
if (checkName = "")
MessageBox::Show("Please Enter\nYour Name.");
label6->Text = L"*";

even if I enter some text in the textbox it will only fire the first condition.

Many thanks

I'm studying hard every day, so why is the learning curve appear to be heading downwards?

RE: Textbox validation

No problems guys found it on MSDN

if (checkName->Length == 0)
