TrimSubstitute allows you to replace text at a series of predetermined points in a string, identified by &1 to &9, trimming all trailing blanks.


In this example, *MtxtCust01 is a multilingual variable containing "&1 &2 has a limit of $&3"
#Givename, #Surname and #Limit have values of 'Veronica  ', 'Brown  ' and '2000' respectively.
The result at run time would be "Veronica Brown has a limit of $2000"
#Com_owner.caption := *MtxtCust01.Substitute(#Givename #Surname #Limit.AsString)
If two ampersands appear together in a string, they are reduced to a single ampersand and not considered for substitution.
In this example, #string will equal "a&2"
#string := ("&1&&2").TrimSubstitute( "a " "b " )
