ignoring all spaces with trim function?

Hi

I am trying to write to a text file from the input that the user enters in a maskeditbox, the user enters a numbers but if they leave blank spaces the problem is that the blank spaces also appear in my text file, so when the user enters 555/222/111 its fine but if a user enters
55   / 2  / 1 then the spaces also appear in my text file; i have tried to use trim to solve this problem but it does not work for this situation, my current code is

assignfile(txt, '/home/user/test2.txt');
rewrite(txt);

S:= ' number' + maskedit1.text ;
S:=Trim(s);
WriteLn(txt,s);
closefile(txt);

also is it possible to get rid of the spaces just in the maskedit1? As if i get rid of all the spaces then the number bit will be stuck with the input the user entered such as
number55/2/1  when is i want number 55/2/1  ,

thanks in advance .

var s : string; i : integer;

s := '';
for i := 1 to Length(maskedit1.text) do begin
  if maskedit1.text[i] > #32 then s := s + maskedit1.text[i];
end;
maskedit1.text := s;

...now write to file etc...

Why not use:

maskedit1.text:=StringReplace(maskedit1.text,' ','',[rfReplaceAll]);

Less code this way ;)
