Assembly: mscorlib (in mscorlib.dll)
'Declaration Public Function PadRight ( _ totalWidth As Integer, _ paddingChar As Char _ ) As String
- Type: System.Int32
The number of characters in the resulting string, equal to the number of original characters plus any additional padding characters.
- Type: System.Char
A Unicode padding character.
Return ValueType: System.String
A new string that is equivalent to this instance, but left-aligned and padded on the right with as many paddingChar characters as needed to create a length of totalWidth. However, if totalWidth is less than the length of this instance, the method returns a reference to the existing instance. If totalWidth is equal to the length of this instance, the method returns a new string that is identical to this instance.
The method pads the end of the returned string. This means that, when used with right-to-left languages, it pads the left portion of the string.
This method does not modify the value of the current instance. Instead, it returns a new string that is padded with trailing paddingChar characters so that its total length is totalWidth characters.
