I thought this would come in handy for someone wanting to trim whitespace from a string or a word.

it will trim all the whitespaces from a work like so: " hi "

it will make it so it looks like this "hi"

Browsers: all

<script language="javascript" type=text/javascript">
function trim(txt){
var tmp = "";
var item_length = txt.length;
var item_length_minus_1 = txt.length - 1;
for (index = 0; index < item_length; index++){
if (txt.charAt(index) != ' '){
tmp += txt.charAt(index);
if (tmp.length > 0){
if (txt.charAt(index+1) != ' ' && index != item_length_minus_1){
tmp += txt.charAt(index);
return tmp;


 // then call it like this

newtxt = trim('fk dns fnds gkejgij');
