Does Not Contain Data on Condition

Hi,

I want to set a condition that checks if a text field contains data. But there is no "contains data" check. What's the workaround to this?

@SeanHenderson to check for contains data you could try is not equal to an expression of null

That did it, thank you. I didn't realize there was a null expression.

The "expression of null" works fantastic for object variables and values. Great tip! However, if it is a string field, the comparison value might need to be blank/empty instead of "expression of null" since the string field initializes to blank/empty/"".
