[closed] How can I stop Yii from trimming strings


I have a requirement (not of my choice) to save a string into the database with various numbers of whitespace preceding the string.

I realise and have voiced my concerns that this is not a best practice, but have been overruled.

My issue is that Yii appears to trim the string before saving or updating.

How can I override this default and allow the string to be saved without trimming it down.

Thanks in advance!
