    I'm getting an error with Polls.  When I go to create a new Poll, I get the following error:

    Compilation Error   
    Description: An error occurred during the compilation of a resource required to service this request. Please review the following specific error details and modify your source code appropriately.   
    Compiler Error Message: CS0117: 'object' does not contain a definition for 'Trim'  
    Source Error:  
    Line 46:                         <li class="title">  
    Line 47:                             <asp:Label ID="Label1" AssociatedControlID="questionText" Text="Question" runat="server"></asp:Label> 
    Line 48:                             <asp:TextBox runat="server" id="questionText" EnableViewState="true"   
    Line 49:                             TextMode="MultiLine" Text='<%# Eval("Text").Trim() %>'></asp:TextBox>                              
    Line 50:                             <span runat="Server" id="questionVal"></span> 
    Source File: C:\MySite\Sitefinity\Admin\ControlTemplates\Polls\PollsInsert.ascx    Line: 48   

    And I can't compile my project unless I remove ".Trim()" from:

    <asp:TextBox runat="server" id="questionText" EnableViewState="true" TextMode="MultiLine" Text='<%# Eval("Text").Trim() %>'></asp:TextBox> 

    Any ideas?

    I should mention that if I remove .Trim() it seems to work fine.  Is there any reason it can't always be like that?

    Hi Ben you need to convert the Eval from type Object to type String before it will recognise the Trim method.


    <%# Eval("Text").ToString().Trim() %>

    Hello Ben,

    It seems that the trim functionality here is something we omitted to remove from the template for which we apologize. Thanks a lot for letting us know.

    Kind regards,
