LSet Function

Returns a left-aligned string containing the specified string, adjusted to the specified length.

Public Shared Function LSet( _
    ByVal Source As String, _
    ByVal Length As Integer _
) As String

Required. String expression. String variable to be adjusted.


Required. Integer expression. Length of returned string.

If Source is longer than Length, LSet returns only the leftmost characters, up to the length of Length. If Source is shorter than Length, LSet adds spaces to the right end of the returned string to produce the appropriate length.

This example demonstrates the use of the LSet function.

Dim TestString As String = "Left" 
Dim lString As String 
' Returns "Left      "
lString = LSet(TestString, 10)
' Returns "Le"
lString = LSet(TestString, 2)
' Returns "Left"
lString = LSet(TestString, 4)
