I want to use CString::Format to pack the items and then print it out. The items are not fix in length.
For example:

CString str, item1, item2;
int i;

for (i= 0 ; i<50 ; i++)
{
...
...
str.Format("%6s %15s", item1, item2);
pDC->TextOut(point.x, point.y, str);
...
}

item1 and item2 will change and have different length all the time.
How can I make the items to right alignment in CString::Format?

This one is really easy, what you got to do is to use 2 Padded string as following:

#define TOTAL_LENGTH_ITEM1 6
#define TOTAL_LENGTH_ITEM2 15

CString strAddedWhiteSpaceForPaddedItem1(' ',
                     TOTAL_LENGHT_ITEM1-strItem1.GetLength());
CString strAddedWhiteSpaceForPaddedItem2(' ',
                     TOTAL_LENGHT_ITEM2-strItem2.GetLength());
str.Format("%s %s",
        strAddedWhiteSpaceForPaddedItem1 + strItem1,
        strAddedWhiteSpaceForPaddedItem2 + strItem2);


and that's all folks!


May the MFC be with you...
