Remove double spaces in a textbox

P: 54
I have this
textbox that users enter their names, but
I realized that they enter their names by entering
so many spaces. I used the
replace function but it does not work well. Is
there anyway to replace the double spaces . Thank you,

You can use RegularExpressions to find any spaces longer than 1 space and replace them with a single space. Try this.
Expand|Select|Wrap|Line Numbers
  1. Imports System.Text.RegularExpressions
  3. Public Class Form1
  5.     Private Sub Button1_Click(ByVal sender As System.Object, ByVal e As System.EventArgs) Handles Button1.Click
  6.         TextBox1.Text = New Regex("\s+").Replace(TextBox1.Text, " ")
  7.     End Sub
  8. End Class
You can check out the msdn link to the Regex.Replace method at the link below. It has an example of this also.
