    Test 'field' is empty or null

    Hi all,

    I'm outputting an image to a page:

    <img src='<umbraco:Item field="newsImage" runat="server"></umbraco:Item>' />

    If there is no image for the news story, Firefox hides it nicely, Chrome however displays the broken image.

    What's the best way to test if there is an image to display?

    Thanks

    This thread might have your answer:

    http://our.umbraco.org/forum/developers/api-questions/9454-Parsing-Umbraco-page-fields-within-inline-NET-in-template?p=0

    I've never used inline .NET in a template, but would imagine it's something like this, maybe?

    <% if (umbraco.library:GetItem('newsImage') != '') { %>

    ......

    <% } %>

    Not pretty, as I am trying to get home, but I did it with jQuery for the mo:

    <script type="text/javascript">
            $(document).ready(function () {
                var ni = $("#newsImage").attr("src");
    
                if (ni == "")
                {
                    $("#newsImage").hide();
                }
            });
        </script>

    I'll look at your method when I get back from the old smoke on Tuesday.

    Thanks Tom.

    Should be something like this:


    <umbraco:Item field="newsImage" runat="server" xslt="concat('&lt;img src=&quot;', umbraco.library:GetMedia({0},'true')/data[@alias='umbracoFile'], '&quot; /&gt;')" xsltDisableEscaping="true" />

    Some extra information about getMedia from the Wiki

    Getting the url of a media file

      <xsl:value-of select="umbraco.library:GetMedia(1057, 'false')/data [@alias = 'umbracoFile']"/>

    and another post forgot the textIfEmpty property. Should show empty string when the field is not populated. (I discovered the edit function, it's called post over and over again) :)

    textIfEmpty=""
