Esta função retorna uma string com os espaçoes retirados do ínicio e do final de str. Sem o segundo parâmetro, trim() irá retirar estes caracteres

  • " " (ASCII 32 (0x20)), um espaço normal.
  • "\t" (ASCII 9 (0x09)), uma tabulação.
  • "\n" (ASCII 10 (0x0A)), uma linha nova (line feed).
  • "\r" (ASCII 13 (0x0D)), um retono de carro.
  • "\0" (ASCII 0 (0x00)), o byte NULL.
  • "\x0B" (ASCII 11 (0x0B)), uma tabulação vertical.

Parâmetros

str

A string que será modificada.

charlist

Opcionalmente, os caracteres removidos pode também ser especificados usando o parâmetro charlist. Simplesmente liste todos os caracteres que você quer retirar. Com .. você pode especificar um intervalo de caracteres.

Valor Retornado

A string com caracteres removidos.

Exemplos

Exemplo #1 Exemplo de uso de trim()

<?php

$text 
"\t\tThese are a few words :) ...  ";
$binary "\x09Example string\x0A";
$hello  "Hello World";
var_dump($text$binary$hello);

print 
"\n";

$trimmed trim($text);
var_dump($trimmed);

$trimmed trim($text" \t.");
var_dump($trimmed);

$trimmed trim($hello"Hdle");
var_dump($trimmed);

// trim the ASCII control characters at the beginning and end of $binary
// (from 0 to 31 inclusive)
$clean trim($binary"\x00..\x1F");
var_dump($clean);

?>

O exemplo acima irá imprimir:

string(32) "        These are a few words :) ...  "
string(16) "    Example string
"
string(11) "Hello World"

string(28) "These are a few words :) ..."
string(24) "These are a few words :)"
string(5) "o Wor"
string(14) "Example string"

Exemplo #2 Usando trim() em valores de array

<?php
function trim_value(&$value

    
$value trim($value); 
}

$fruit = array('apple','banana '' cranberry ');
var_dump($fruit);

array_walk($fruit'trim_value');
var_dump($fruit);

?>

O exemplo acima irá imprimir:

array(3) {
  [0]=>
  string(5) "apple"
  [1]=>
  string(7) "banana "
  [2]=>
  string(11) " cranberry "
}
array(3) {
  [0]=>
  string(5) "apple"
  [1]=>
  string(6) "banana"
  [2]=>
  string(9) "cranberry"
}

Non-breaking spaces can be troublesome with trim:

<?php
// turn some HTML with non-breaking spaces into a "normal" string
$myHTML = "&nbsp;abc";
$converted = strtr($myHTML, array_flip(get_html_translation_table(HTML_ENTITIES, ENT_QUOTES)));

// this WILL NOT work as expected
// $converted will still appear as " abc" in view source
// (but not in od -x)
$converted = trim($converted);

// &nbsp; are translated to 0xA0, so use:
$converted = trim($converted, "\xA0"); // <- THIS DOES NOT WORK

// EDITED>>
// UTF encodes it as chr(0xC2).chr(0xA0)
$converted = trim($converted,chr(0xC2).chr(0xA0)); // should work

// PS: Thanks to John for saving my sanity!

To remove multiple occurences of whitespace characters in a string an convert them all into single spaces, use this:

<?

$text = preg_replace('/\s+/', ' ', $text);

?>

It may be useful to know that trim() returns an empty string when the argument is an unset/null variable.

This function trims regular expressions from strings.

<?php
   
function preg_trim( $string, $pattern ) {
       
$pattern = array( "/^" . $pattern . "*/", "/" . $pattern . "*$/" );
        return
preg_replace( $pattern, "", $string );
    }
?>

The following example outputs "Hello, world":

<?php
    $hello
= "   ...%20Hello, world!";
    echo
preg_trim( $hello, "[^a-zA-Z]" );
?>

Trim will generate a warning is you try to trim an empty string if this is a problem for you can test with is_string

A simple function to clear extra white spaces along a string.
<?php
function TrimStr($str)
{
   
$str = trim($str);
    for(
$i=0;$i < strlen($str);$i++)
    {

        if(
substr($str, $i, 1) != " ")
        {

           
$ret_str .= trim(substr($str, $i, 1));

        }
        else
        {
            while(
substr($str,$i,1) == " ")
          
            {
               
$i++;
            }
           
$ret_str.= " ";
           
$i--; // ***
       
}
    }
    return
$ret_str;
}
?>

Windows uses two characters for definining newlines, namely ASCII 13 (carriage return, "\r") and ASCII 10 (line feed, "\n") aka CRLF. So if you have a string with CRLF's, trim() won't recognize them as being one newline. To solve this you can use str_replace() to replace the CRLF's with with a space or something.

<?php
// string with bunch of CRLF's
$my_string = "Liquid\r\nTension Experiment\r\n\r\n\r\n";

// replace CRLF's with spaces
$my_wonderful_string = str_replace("\r\n", " ", $my_string);
// would result in "Liquid Tension Experiment   "

// or just delete the CRLF's (by replacing them with nothing)
$my_wonderful_string = str_replace("\r\n", "", $my_string);
// would result in "LiquidTension Experiment"
?>

If you want to check whether something ONLY has whitespaces, use the following:

<?php

if (trim($foobar)=='') {
   echo
'The string $foobar only contains whitespace!';
}

On my application I had several users submit what to me appeared as "empty strings", whereas in fact they were submitting the &shy; character.

Trim, by default, does not strip this character (Though arguably it should). The following code strips this character from your input:

<?php

// As the &shy; character is invisible we'll simply use the ASCII numeric representation, and decode via chr():
$string = trim($string, chr(173));

// If you wish to strip all occurences this will work:
$string = str_replace(chr(173), "", $string);

?>

To show off the empty positions in a string by means of trim():

<?php
    $string
= "    Hello World!   ";
    echo
$string;
    echo
" Has : ".strlen($string)." letter(s). One by one according to the following:<br />";
    echo
"<br />".$rightt = strlen(ltrim($string)) - strlen(trim($string))." empty position(s) from right.";
    echo
"<br />".$leftt = strlen(rtrim($string)) - strlen(trim($string))." empty position(s) from left.<br />";
   
$length = strlen($string);
    for(
$x = 0; $x < $length; $x++){
   
$letter = substr($string, $x, 1);
        if(
$letter <> " ")
            echo
"<br />Position&nbsp;&nbsp; $x ===> &nbsp;&nbsp;".substr($string, $x, 1);
        else
            echo
"<br />Position&nbsp;&nbsp; $x ===> &nbsp;&nbsp; Empty";
    }   
?>

the output is:

Hello World! Has : 19 letter(s). One by one according to the following:

3 empty position(s) from right.
4 empty position(s) from left.

Position   0 ===>    Empty
Position   1 ===>    Empty
Position   2 ===>    Empty
Position   3 ===>    Empty
Position   4 ===>   H
Position   5 ===>   e
Position   6 ===>   l
Position   7 ===>   l
Position   8 ===>   o
Position   9 ===>    Empty
Position   10 ===>   W
Position   11 ===>   o
Position   12 ===>   r
Position   13 ===>   l
Position   14 ===>   d
Position   15 ===>   !
Position   16 ===>    Empty
Position   17 ===>    Empty
Position   18 ===>    Empty

You can combine character ranges and individual characters in trim()'s second argument (ditto for ltrim and rtrim). All of the specified characters and ranges will be used concurrently (i.e., if a character on either end of the string matches any of the specified charaters or character ranges, it will be trimmed). The characters and character ranges can be in any order (except of course that the character ranges need to be specified in increasing order) and may overlap.
E.g., trim any nongraphical non-ASCII character:
trim($text,"\x7f..\xff\x0..\x1f");
