Subject Re: Can Wicket automatically remove beginning and trailing spaces in a text field?
Date Fri, 02 Oct 2009 07:56:37 GMT
Never done it myself, and don't know if it is a better way to do it, but:
protected IConverterLocator
return new ConverterLocator();

can be overriden to return your own converter locator and... plug there a
default converter (for Strings?) that will trim strings...

If you want to do this for a particular kind of component, e.g. textareas,
another possibility would be to use a component instantiation listener and
wrap the component model with a trimming model, e.g.

import org.apache.wicket.model.IModel;
import org.apache.wicket.model.Model;

public class TrimmingModel extends Model<String> {

private static final long serialVersionUID = 1L;
 private IModel<String> model;

public TrimmingModel(IModel<String> model) {
this.model = model;
public void setObject(String object) {
if(object != null)
public String getObject() {
return this.model.getObject();
