In the field "MetaKeywords" below :

sb.Append(string.Format("{0}{1}", p.MetaKeywords.Replace('"', '\''), ",Home Alarms"));

it has a value like : "dome cam, dummy cam, fake Surveillance, fake security, cameras"


I want to remove the space after the commas, like : "dome cam,dummy cam,fake Surveillance,fake security,cameras"


How can this be done in C#? thanks

string v = s.Replace(", ", ",");

Open in new window

This will replace all commas+space with commas only, in given string.

you could just do .Replace(", " ",")

and if you are worried about multiple spaces you can use something like this:

http://stackoverflow.com/questions/206717/how-do-i-replace-multiple-spaces-with-a-single-space-in-c

to get it down to a single space then use:

you could just do .Replace(", " ",")

Check this out

using System.Text.RegularExpressions;
..............................................

string pattern = @"\s*,\s*";
string input = "dome cam, dummy cam, fake Surveillance, fake security, cameras";
string replacement = ",";
            
Regex rgx = new Regex(pattern);
string result = rgx.Replace(input, replacement);

so it would be something like so:


string s = "dome cam,     dummy cam, fake Surveillance, fake security, cameras";

            RegexOptions options = RegexOptions.None;
            Regex regex = new Regex(@"[ ]{2,}", options);
            string x = regex.Replace(s, @" ");


            Response.Write(x.Replace(", ", ","));

yes to add in your replace just do:
string s = "dome cam,     dummy cam, fake Surveillance, fake security, cameras";

            RegexOptions options = RegexOptions.None;
            Regex regex = new Regex(@"[ ]{2,}", options);
            string x = regex.Replace(s, @" ");


            Response.Write(x.Replace(", ", ",").Replace('"', '\''));

I don't know but you can try:
(p.MetaKeywords.Replace('"', '\'')).Replace(", ", ",")

if you exactly wants to replace "comma with white space " by "comma" then do it as follows

sb.Append(string.Format("{0}{1}", p.MetaKeywords.Replace('"', '\'').Replace(", ", ","), ",Home Alarms"));
