WhiteSpaceTrimStringConverter Class

Converts a string to its canonical format.

Namespace:  System.Configuration
Assembly:  System.Configuration (in System.Configuration.dll)

public sealed class WhiteSpaceTrimStringConverter : ConfigurationConverterBase

This WhiteSpaceTrimStringConverter object converts between a configuration string value and its canonical representation. Canonical representation means that all white spaces are trimmed from the beginning and end of a string value.

The following code example shows how to apply WhiteSpaceTrimStringConverter to a custom string property FileName.

[ConfigurationProperty("fileName", DefaultValue="   default.txt  ")]
public String FileName
        return (String)this["fileName"];
        this["fileName"] = value;

The following is a configuration excerpt used by the previous example.

<?xml version="1.0" encoding="utf-8"?>

    <section name="CustomSection" 
      Version=, Culture=neutral, 
      restartOnExternalChanges="true" />
  <CustomSection fileName="default.txt" maxIdleTime="90" timeDelay="infinite" cdStr="str0, str1" permission="Read" maxUsers="Infinite"/>
