    String.trimLeft Redirect 1

    This feature is non-standard and is not on a standards track. Do not use it on production sites facing the Web: it will not work for every user. There may also be large incompatibilities between implementations and the behavior may change in the future.


    The trimLeft() removes whitespace from the left end of the string.




    The trimLeft method returns the string stripped of whitespace from its left end. trimLeft does not affect the value of the string itself.


    Example: Using trimLeft

    The following example displays the lowercase string "foo  ":

    var str = "   foo  ";
    console.log(str.length); // 8
    str = str.trimLeft();
    console.log(str.length); // 5
    console.log(str);        // "foo  "
