if form input is blank then use a different field value as default

Hi, ok, I assume I need to add an IF statement inside the code for an insert record....

On my product form, I have a field for SEO Title, now if the field is kept blank, I would like to use the Product Name as a default to be stored. So I would need to write an IF statement and add that in the webassist insert record interface. What would be the syntax for writing this IF statement?

So basically if the input value of TitleSEO is NULL then bind Form.ProductName to Form.TitleSEO. Else bind what the client types in the Form.TitleSEO.
