I have a PopupMenu containing some text. I start out with:
Dim theText As String = PopupMenu1.Text
Then I use the “Right” method to get the rightmost character(s) which are numbers. Since the numbers could be >= 10, I use the code:
Dim target As String = theText.Right(2)
This works fine, but since the number might be < 10, I want to trim off the leading white space, so I use the “TrimLeft” method:
target = target.TrimLeft
But when I do, I get the error message: “This method extends type Text, but the base expression is type String.”
The “Right” method seems to work fine with Strings but the “Trim” method seems to require text. I’ve tried numerous things to work around this including “ToText” but nothing has worked. Any thoughts?
