Trim Varchar Columns Trailing Spaces

Trim Varchar Columns Trailing Spaces

(OP)
New to MySql, is there a setting to force all varchar columns to trim trailing spaces? It looks like it used to be automatic in older versions, but I can't find anywhere to set this as a default.

Dunno, this is the MySQL forum so we give MySQL answers.

Try one of the .NET language forums.
