Trim() function example

Essential syntax:
LTrim()
RTrim()
Trim()

Here is an example of trimming both leading and trailing spaces from a character string stored in a variable:
<HTML>
  <%  'BEGIN ASP SCRIPT
             Dim cTest, cNew  'Initialize a couple of
             'character variables
             cTest = "this is a test"
             cNew = Trim(cTest)
  %> 
 <!–END ASP SCRIPT ––>
  The new value is <%=cNew%>.
</HTML>


The output from this code segment would be:
The new value is this is a test.

This function could be useful in joining data from multiple fields (first name in one field, last name in another) or a text field in an HTML FORM in which the user may have put in a blank line or spaces before or after the actual text.
