Default Removing space's from the start and end of a string

Hi Reader.

I have a program where a user enters some text. Some times the user adds one or more spaces at the front and/or back of the text they have entered, for example:

(" I am the space master! ")

Is there anyway to remove these spaces but still leave the other spaces there. So the above would come the below:

("I am the space master!")

I have seen there are already some posts on this topic but they all remove all the spaces in the string. I just want to remove the ones at the beginning and end.

Thanks

Leah

Try this-

str = " abcd efg ";
var newstr = "";
var k = str.length-1;

function test()
{
if(str.substr(0,1) == " ")
{
newstr = str.substr(1, k);
}
trace(">"+newstr+"<");

if(str.substr(k,1) == " ")
{
newstr = newstr.substr(0, newstr.length-1);

}
trace(">"+newstr+"<");
}
