I recently started working with Visual Studio 2010 and .NET 4.0 and I came across one of the new language features, String.IsNullWithWhiteSpace. Basically, it's an enhanced version of the commonly used String.IsNullOrEmpty. This new enhanced version goes a step forward and checks for whitespaces such as tabs.

String myString = “          “;


//returns false


Bool result = String.IsNullOrEmpty(myString);


//returns true


Bool result = String.IsNullOrWhiteSpace(myString);

A simple but convenient feature.

Sorry about the confusion. It's String.IsNullOrWhiteSpace.
