    Default Formatting Issue

    Hello,

    I am using PircBotX to create a irc bot, but I am having an issue creating a dynamic command system. I am using MySQL to store information into a database, and it works fine. I also have no problem reading from the database so please do not even consider that it is the database.

    	public void onMessage(MessageEvent<PircBotX> event) throws Exception {
    		String[] args = event.getMessage().split(" ");
    		if(event.getMessage().startsWith("!peacebot command add")) {			
    			MySQL mysql = new MySQL();
    			mysql.connect("127.0.0.1", "root", "", "peacebot");
    			mysql.Query("INSERT INTO `peacebot`.`peacebot_command` (`command_id`, `command_channel`, `command_trigger`, `command_message`) VALUES (NULL, '" + event.getChannel().getName().replace("#", "") + "', '" + args[3] + "', '" + event.getMessage().substring(22).replaceAll(args[3], "") + "');");
    			mysql.disconnect();
    			/**for(int i = 0; i < args.length; i++) {
    				List<String> list = new ArrayList<String>();
    				for (String s : args) {
    					list.add(s);
    				}
     
    				System.out.println(list);
     
    				Iterator<String> itr = list.iterator();
    		        while(itr.hasNext()){
    		            System.out.println(itr.next());
    		        }
    			}**/
    		}
    	}

    I already know what the problem is, but I do not know how to fix it. The problem is that the argument[3] has a space in it, but it will not erase the space no matter what I do.

    Example:
    1399576848536 <<<:mretech!mretech@mretech.tmi.twitch.tv PRIVMSG #mretech :!peacebot command add !test test
    1399576850794 <<<:mretech!mretech@mretech.tmi.twitch.tv PRIVMSG #mretech :!test
    1399576850818 >>>PRIVMSG #mretech : test

    Can you strip out the code you are using to remove a space from a String and post it here for testing?
    If you don't understand my answer, don't ignore it, ask a question.

    Well, all I am doing is removing args[3] from the String the gets put into the command_message column with the replaceAll function but for whatever reason it leaves a space in the String.

    event.getMessage().substring(22).replaceAll(args[3], "")

    Can you make a sample statement with literal values in place of variables?
    The posted code does not show what is in getMessage().substring(22)
    or what is in args[3].
    Their contents are important when determining what the code should do.
