I am using views and drupal 7 . I pass arguments in the URL and i want this as view page title. This is possible by using override title check-box. But i want to modify this title. i.e do some formatting and some trim of the content and show only what i require as title. how can i do it.

If I'm not mistaken, you cannot so that in the UI. However, you can implement a hook in a custom module, take the available variables, apply your own logic and set the title you want. Here is an example: Set page title for view in Drupal

Hi can i get the argument passed in the URL in this hook function my_module_views_pre_render ?? so that i can modify and use it. Can i write this function in my template file? – Hacker Sep 27 '11 at 11:18
The argument should be inside the $view variable passed to that function. Logic like this belongs in a custom module, not in the theme layer. – marcvangend Sep 27 '11 at 11:35

There is now Page Title contrib module that offers Views integration as well.

You can implements with metatag module. This module allows you to automatically provide structured metadata.

found a simple solution instead of separate module

 * @param type $vars
function MYTHEME_preprocess_views_view(&$vars) {

  // view block 
  if ($vars['view']->name == 'viewName') {
      //update your title
      $vars['view']->build_info['title'] = '---Tittle---';

Replace MYTHEME with your default theme. put above code in your template.php
