String::PadRight Method (Int32)
Returns a new string that left-aligns the characters in this string by padding them with spaces on the right, for a specified total length.
Assembly: mscorlib (in mscorlib.dll)
- Type: System::Int32
The number of characters in the resulting string, equal to the number of original characters plus any additional padding characters.
Return ValueType: System::String
A new string that is equivalent to this instance, but left-aligned and padded on the right with as many spaces 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.
A Unicode space is defined as hexadecimal 0x0020.
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.
If the PadRight method pads the current instance with whitespace characters, this method does not modify the value of the current instance. Instead, it returns a new string that is padded with trailing white space so that its total length is totalWidth characters.
The following example demonstrates the PadRight method.
