Trim whitespace from search term

Postby drewnoakes » Thu May 26, 2016 9:53 am

It's common to copy/paste an API function name from a web site into the search box. However this often includes a trailing space. This causes zero results to be returned, which is a bit surprising. Removing the space causes the search to complete as you'd expect.

Please trim before continuing!

Hi Drew, thanks for this information, I've passed it onto the team for investigation.

You're welcome. I'm sure this has tripped users up in the past. Perhaps you can verify this in your logs. Regardless, it should be a fast thing to change, at least in terms of development effort.
