Laravel 4 When i retrieve info from database into input text, 1 extra space is added

I am doing a form where the user can update his information. The form shows several inputs and the info retrieved from the database is displayed inside them.
I have noticed that, when the info is displayed, one extra space is added. For example, if i retrieve a date ‘1965-08-29’, then in the form i notice that an extra space is added at the end: ‘1965-08-29 ‘.

This is happening in all inputs causing validation fails.

Here is a sample code about how i retrieve the data inside the controller:


Here is how i send these data to the view:
return View::make('profile.edit',array('id_user'=>$id_user, 'nombrepila'=>$nombrepila, 'ap_paterno'=>$ap_paterno,'ap_materno'=>$ap_materno));

Here are some examples of the inputs in the view:
    <div class="form-group @if ($errors->has('nombre_pila')) has-error @endif"><!--Nombre de pila-->
        <label for="nombre_pila" class="col-sm-2 control-label">Nombre(s) de pila:</label>
        <div class="col-sm-6">
            <input type="text" class="form-control" id="nombre_pila" name="nombre_pila" maxlength="45" value="@if(isset($nombrepila)){{$nombrepila}} @endif">
    </div><!-- ----------fin nombre de pila ------------ -->

    <div class="form-group @if ($errors->has('ap_paterno')) has-error @endif"><!--apellido paterno-->
        <label for="ap_paterno" class="col-sm-2 control-label">Apellido paterno:</label>
        <div class="col-sm-6">
            <input type="text" class="form-control" id="ap_paterno" name="ap_paterno" maxlength="45" value="@if(isset($ap_paterno)){{$ap_paterno}} @endif">
    </div><!-- ----------fin de apellido paterno ------------ -->

I am using bootstrap 3 forms (i don’t know whether this has to do with the problem or not)

It could be that i should use something like the rtrim() function. But if someone out there could explain me why this is happening or what i am missing to do, i’ll appreciate it.

Method 1

You have a space before your @endifs. To fix that either do


or (a bit nicer in my opinion)
value="{{ (isset($ap_paterno) ? $ap_paterno : '') }}"
