Hi to all.

I have an easy (i think) problem

I have a number let's say 123.
I want if the number is < 3 to add zeroes so my new field is 4 digits
123 0123
1234 1234
345 0345

The minimum length of my number field is 3

Thanks and regards.

Solution 1

You can't do that with numbers - the number of leading zeros doesn't matter because they are always ignored.
You can do it when you format a number into a string for display however:
Dim val As Integer = 123
Dim formatted As String = val.ToString("D4")
Console.WriteLine("{0:D4}", val)
Will both produce "0123"

Thanks for your answer and your time
I finally solve my problem using
x.ToString.PadLeft(4, "0"c)

Anyway thanks again.
