VB.NET RTrim

Dear Experts,

In VB.NET, there is this function:

String.Trim(array<Char>)

which removes all leading and trailing occurrences of a set of characters specified in an array from the current String object.

It looks like there are no RTrim and LTrim equivalents. I need function

RTrim(array<Char>)

that removes the specified array of characters from the end of a string.

TrimEnd and TrimStart takes an characterarray as a parameter.
Dim str As String = "boxter8366#"
str.TrimEnd(New Char() {"#"c}) 'Result: "boxter866"
 
str.TrimEnd(New Char() {"6"c, "#"c}) ' Result: "boxter83"

JPJ78:

The LTrim function only strips leading spaces and the RTrim function only strips trailing spaces from a string variable.

I want a function that not only strips SPACES but also other characters like what the String.Trim function does. For example:

RTrim("boxter8366#", "#")

should return: "boxter866"

and

RTrim("boxter8366#", "#6")

should return: "boxter83"
