Trim function in Javascript

function trim(inputString)

    if (typeof inputString != "string")


return inputString;

    var retValue = inputString;
    var ch = retValue.substring(0, 1);
    while (ch == " ")

{ // Check for spaces at the beginning of the string
       retValue = retValue.substring(1, retValue.length);
       ch = retValue.substring(0, 1);
    ch = retValue.substring(retValue.length-1, retValue.length);
    while (ch == " ")


// Check for spaces at the end of the string
       retValue = retValue.substring(0, retValue.length-1);
       ch = retValue.substring(retValue.length-1, retValue.length);
    while (retValue.indexOf("  ") != -1)


 // Note that there are two spaces in the string - look for multiple spaces within the string
       retValue = retValue.substring(0, retValue.indexOf("  ")) + retValue.substring(retValue.indexOf("  ")+1, retValue.length);

 // Again, there are two spaces in each of the strings
    return retValue; // Return the trimmed string back to the user
 } /


   alert('Name is blank');
   return false;
