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

String^ TrimStart(
	... array<wchar_t>^ trimChars


Type: array<System..::..Char>[]()[][]
An array of Unicode characters to remove, or nullNothingnullptrunita null reference (Nothing in Visual Basic).

Return Value

Type: System..::..String
The string that remains after all occurrences of characters in the trimChars parameter are removed from the start of the current string. If trimChars is nullNothingnullptrunita null reference (Nothing in Visual Basic) or an empty array, white-space characters are removed instead.

The TrimStart method removes from the current string all leading characters that are in the trimChars parameter. The trim operation stops when a character that is not in trimChars is encountered. For example, if the current string is "123abc456xyz789" and trimChars contains the digits from "1" through "9", the TrimStart method returns "abc456xyz789".
