Spacer characters in format strings

Discussion in 'ASP .Net' started by Nathan Sokalski, May 20, 2008.

  1. I am trying to make a format string for use in methods such as
    String.Format. I want the formatted string to be a fixed length with any
    empty spaces to be filled with a specified character. For example, I would
    want the following statement:


    To return:


    However, when this type of format string is used the empty spaces are filled
    with spaces. I am aware that this is what is expected, but is there a way to
    specify a character to use for filling the empty spaces? Any help would be
    appreciated. Thanks.
