Hi Experts,
I am getting a blank space in my text area and not able to remove it.

<%String query = (String)request.getAttribute("query");
 if(query == null) query = "";
 %>
 <textarea cols="100" rows="10" name="query"><%=query%>
</textarea>

Please Help

Hi AmodKr,

textarea interprets whatever is nested inside as its contents.
Try this:

<%String query = (String)request.getAttribute("query");
 if(query == null) query = "";
 %>
 <textarea cols="100" rows="10" name="query"><%=query%></textarea>


Hope it helps!
