Hi!

If a string starts with one or multiple carriage returns (Environment.NewLine) I need to remove them. How can this be done? I don't want to remove the carriage returns INSIDE the string, just in the start of it.

Thanks :)

var trimStr = str.TrimStart(Environment.NewLine);

Hi!

It seems like this don't work since .TrimStart() expect a char array. Environment.NewLine is not a single char.

define a new line \n or \r\n ?  0x0d,0x0a or just 0x0a ?

you have to do the trimstart 2x 1 for each single character and in case of multiple newlines recurse until it stops finding them.

I solved this, here is the solution:


char[] NewLineChars = Environment.NewLine.ToCharArray();
string trimStr = str.TrimStart(NewLineChars);
