Formatting a number to be zero-padded

int i = 3;
string padded = string.Format("{0:5D", i);
Gives a value of "00003" as the string called "padded" - that simple.

About Rob

I've been interested in computing since the day my Dad purchased his first business PC (an Amstrad PC 1640 for anyone interested) which introduced me to MS-DOS batch programming and BASIC.

My skillset has matured somewhat since then, which you'll probably see from the posts here. You can read a bit more about me on the about page of the site, or check out some of the other posts on my areas of interest.
