Remove first character in a do while statement

Posted on 2008-10-28

I have a Do while statement that I can't get to work. What I would like to do is trim the front of a text box.  For example if a user enters "0001" I would like to trim it to "1".  I think I'm using the Remove function wrong because it just goes on continuous loop right now.  Thanks
string Search = Convert.ToString(SearchTextBox.Text);
            while (Search.StartsWith("0"));

Try this:

string s = SearchTextBox.Text;
        string Search = Convert.ToString(s);
            s = s.Remove(0, 1);
        while (s.StartsWith("0"));
