How to trim NSString in Objective C 2.0 – iOS, iPad, iPhone

When you want to trim a NSString in Objective C you can use NSString’s method stringByTrimmingCharactersInSet and passing it a [NSCharacterSet whitespaceAndNewlineCharacterSet] characterSet. This will trim your NSString from all newline and whitespace characters.

NSString *trimMe = @"    Trim this string      ";
trimMe = [trimMe stringByTrimmingCharactersInSet:[NSCharacterSet whitespaceAndNewlineCharacterSet]];
NSLog(@"Trimmed String: ++%@++", trimMe);
//returnes Trimmed String: ++Trim this string+++

You can also trim just whitespace by passing [NSCharacterSet whitespaceCharacterSet] or trim just newline characters by passing [NSCharacterSet newlineCharacterSet]
