How can i trim text ?

#1
[eluser]margsot[/eluser]
I would like to trim text of one field called description to 100 characters.

I tried to use this php code in my view file but doesnt work.

Code:
$max_length = 100;

if (strlen($s) > $max_length)
{
    $offset = ($max_length - 3) - strlen($s);
    $s = substr($s, 0, strrpos($s, ' ', $offset)) . '...';
}

The code works fine for me, are you sure that you passed $s into your view correctly?

You really shouldn't be dealing with this type of logic in your views anyway, it's better to process it in your controller.
