Hi Patrick,

You can use the method isEmptyValue( $fieldValue ) on your field type, to check if the value is empty or not.

Hi Edi,

How can I get the fieldtype you mentioned from my contentobject?

ok i finally figured out how i can check if a xml field is empty inside the templates...

content.getField('randomxmlfield').value.xml|xmltext_to_html5 will return NULL if there's no text inside a xmlfield.
