Trim Each textbox control

P: n/a
HI

I'm trying to iterate through all the textboxes on a webpage and trim
them for spaces.

i.e. If a user enters " hello world " we correct it to "hello
world"

So far I've come up with this:

-------------------------------------------------------------------------------

'Trim all textboxes
Dim ThisControl As System.Web.UI.Control
For Each ThisControl In Me.Controls

If ThisControl.GetType().ToString() =
"system.Web.UI.WebControls.TextBox" Then

ThisControl.text = Trim(ThisControl.text)
'Above line is wrong syntax, I want to trim the textbox here, but I'm
stuck! Please help...

End If

Next ThisControl

-------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Can you help?

Many Thanks!

use RTrim() and LTrim().
R for right and L for the left side to remove spaces.

Hi Richard

The problem I have is not really with the trim function. It's the fact
that I cannot update the control text value. It won't allow the .text
property at all in this example because "thiscontrol" is not actually
aware that the control assigned to it is actually a textbox. Is there a
way to tell it it's a textbox so I can access this property, or is there
another way around this?

Any answers folks?

Cheers

Alex
