The idea is to check if the user entered a name. If he didn't, alert the user that he didn't do so. Currently it's giving me this error... \MainForm.cs(94,7): error CS0122: 'System.Windows.Forms.Control.text' is inaccessible due to its protection level

The field 'text' is the private or protected backer of the 'Text' property. You need the property, thus 'Text'. Watch the uppercase T!


if (tbName.text == "")


if (tbName.Text == "")
