Tips & Tricks – Trim method in Microsoft Dynamics NAV (Microsoft Business Solutions-Navision)

My Tip & Trick help you to implement Trim function in C/AL for Microsoft Dynamics Nav.

Trim

Removes all white-space characters from the start and end of a string.

You can use the C/AL function DELCHR with the following syntax:

NewString := DELCHR(String [, Where] [, Which])

So, you can use the following code:

String := DELCHR(String,'<>’,’ ‘);

TrimStart or LTrim

Removes all white-space characters from the start of a string.

String := DELCHR(String,'<‘,’ ‘);

TrimEnd or RTrim

Removes all white-space characters from the end of a string.

String := DELCHR(String,’>’,’ ‘);

NOTE:
Since “spaces” are used as the default for Which, we can skip second parameter and write code like this:

String := DELCHR(String,'<>’);
