Parameters

chTarget

The target characters to be trimmed.

Remarks

Call the version of this member function with no parameters to trim leading whitespace characters from the string. When used with no parameters, TrimLeft removes newline, space, and tab characters.

Example

In this example, the string "\t\t   ****Hockey is best!" becomes "Hockey is best!":

CString strBefore;
CString strAfter;

strBefore = _T("\t\t   ****Hockey is best!");
strAfter = strBefore;
strAfter.TrimLeft(T_("\t *"));

_tprintf(_T("Before: \"%s\"\n"), (LPCTSTR) strBefore);
_tprintf(_T("After : \"%s\"\n"), (LPCTSTR) strAfter);
