I'm trying to access the text in a data grid template control which I'm able to do however the results that are returned have 25 characters around it. The characters are not spaces as the trim function does not remove them. My code is:
Public Sub dgProgramManager_Edit(ByVal sender As Object, ByVal e As System.Web.UI.WebControls.DataGridCommandEventArgs) Handles dgProgramManager.EditCommand
Dim temp As String = CType(e.Item.Cells(3).Controls(0), DataBoundLiteralControl).Text
Dim temp2 As String = Len(temp)
dgProgramManager.EditItemIndex = e.Item.ItemIndex
When I debug it the temp variable has the following content:
" name "
and the length is 29
The result should be just "name".
Any suggestions would be greatly appreciate.
