FUNCTION:  String.isEmpty

String.isEmpty(string)
 
The String.isEmpty function tests the length of a given string to determine if it is empty and returns a boolean value. If the string has zero length, true is returned. if the string has a length greater than zero, false is returned.
 
Note that you can use the String.length function to find the numeric length of a string.
 
The mandatory string parameter can be any string containing zero or more of any combination of characters (including white spaces). This parameter can also be an empty string.
