Well - probably a better way in LN. But in 4c4 I could check the text number and put up a error message when they hit save. Then just not let them save the record until they added text.
My latest mantra - make sure you have latest stpapi patches and the latest session object. If on LN then please explore the option of using DAL2 functionality.
