avoiding whitespace in inputs

Recommended Posts

gcue

hello world.

i have several user inputs throughout my script. sometimes people copy and paste entries into these inputs and dont realize they have a space there - so their results are wrong.

i know i can use stringstripws to every input entry, but is there a cleaner way of doing it? i checkedd the input styles and extended styles to see if there was anything i could specify that just wouldnt allow a whitespace character for that input but none of them seem to do that.

anyone else come across this?

thanks in advance.

If StringStripWS does what you need why look for a "cleaner" way?

i guess i would have thought it would be cleaner to specify a style that prevents spaces to begin with instead of trying to remove them if someone puts them in

gcue,

Search the forum for EN_CHANGE - that is the Windows message that indicates a change in the content of an editor input control. On receipt of this message you can adjust the content of the control as you wish - using StringStripWS for example. ;)

See what you can find and come back if you get stuck. :)
