Implementing NoWrap in an ASP.NET DataGrid.

Scratching my head

So I scratched my head for a while, Googled a bit, and tried HttpUtility.HtmlEncode. No success. It does not convert a space to a non-breaking space. So I scratched again and then added this code in a module:

Option Strict On
Option Explicit On
Imports System.Runtime.CompilerServices

Module Extensions

  < Extension() > _
  Public Function SpaceToNbsp(ByVal s As String) As String
    Dim space As String = " "
    Return s.Replace(" ", space)
  End Function

End Module

In the code above:

Dim space As String = " "

should be

Dim space As String = ""&nbsp;""

Then I wrote this code:

row("Borgnummer") = i.OrgNummer.Text & " / ".SpaceToNbsp & i.PersNummer.Text

Voila! It came out just as I wanted:
