Converting String to Integer

Hello everyone,

I'm having a little bit of trouble converting a string a an integer:



If I set string1 = "5" and string2 = "4" the output is "9". But like I excepted it doesn't work when the strings have spaces in them . How do I remove does spaces in the beginning? Does anyone know a built-in method from the APIs or an alternative way around this problem

Thank-you

[edit - change 'quote' tags to 'code' tags]

Olivier,

I change your post a little. When you want to post code, don't use the 'quote' tags, but the 'code' tags. This will preserve your formatting, making it easier to read.


There are only two hard things in computer science: cache invalidation, naming things, and off-by-one errors

Go through the Integer class; there are probably several methods and a constructor which take Strings as parameters.
 
It is sorta covered in the JavaRanch Style Guide.
