How to Trim Characters in C#

By | April 18, 2016

The removing of leading and trailing characters in c# is made possible by the System namespace.

My demo is uses a windows form to illustrate trimming of characters.

My form looks as shown below.

ctrim1

The default value in my text box is my name printed with leading and trailing characters as ”             Sifiso Ndlovu   “.

When you click the Trim button, you supposed to execute the below code behind the button:

private void butTrim_Click(object sender, EventArgs e)
    {
        textBox2.Text = textBox1.Text.Trim();
    }

The bottom text box is then used to present a trimmed output as shown below:

ctrim2

That’s all, folks. Till next time.

Cheers,

Sifiso.
