Hey I have an array of class:
Empty = new EmptyPage[100];
for (int i = 0; i < 100; i++)
    Empty[i] = null;

If I do: if(Empty[0]==null) ==> always returns false;

What is the best way to check if an object is not defined or it is null?

But it should work like this. What's the rest of the code?

I cannot believe that someone else will be able to suggest such gibberish.
The answer is: someObject == null. I'm really sorry, Dheerendra, but the vote is 1...
By the way, in general case, ReferencesEqual should be used, as equality can be overridden.

Your code looks ok.

To check for null you can always look at the null coalese operator[^].
