Remove spaces in a string

8 posts in this topic

#1 ·  Posted (edited)

Hi All,

does someone know how to easily replace multiple spaces with one space..

For example

$String = "I    don't like      spaces"

Should be

$StringNew = "I don't like spaces"

Thnx

Emiel

$StringNew = StringStripWS($String,4)

Or you can do it with StringReplace($string, " ", "")

That will remove all spaces and not just the extra ones.

Btw, just add your number of spaces what you need to replace ^^

StringReplace($string, "    ", "")

What happens when there may be one or more extra spaces? The correct answer has already been given to the problem.

To do anything with StringReplace you would have to do something like

While StringInStr($string, "  ")
   $sString = StringReplace($string, "  ", " ")
Wend

Why would you want to use a slow method like that when $string = StringStripWS($string, 4) will do it for you?
