Example #3

This example shows a Text Input Control that is bound to the variable first_name and the button is either enabled or disabled based on whether a value has been entered into the text field.

To do this, use the Is Disabled property with an Airscript expression to check if there's a value.

ISEMPTY(  
  first_name  
)
  • If first_name is empty, then Is Disabled = TRUE
  • If first_name has a value, then Is Disabled = FALSE
