How do I check for an empty field in a form?


If you want to check whether a form field has a value or not, use the empty function

<?php
$formvalue 
"on";
if(empty(
$formvalue)) { echo "I am empty!"; }
?>


People sometimes get confused between isset and empty - the former just checks whether the variable is present or not but ignores any value it may or may not have.
