All,

Just trying to figure out some ASP on the fly and I am stumped. I am not entirely sure if this is .Net ASP or not, but figured this is a good place to start.

I am simply trying to fix a form input problem where a certain TextBox that usually contains integers can sometimes be empty. If empty, I would like to have my variable set to NULL if possible (assuming my DB will like that).

This is what I am attempting and the error follows:

<code>
Dim intDispOrder as Integer
If Trim(CType(e.Item.FindControl("txtDGDispOrder"),TextBox).Text) != "" Then
intDispOrder = (CType(e.Item.FindControl("txtDGDispOrder"),TextBox).Text)
End If
</code>

Compiler Error Message: BC30205: End of statement expected.

Can someone point me to the syntax problem? Any extra pointers about the actual code and if it will work are appreciated too!

TIA!
