using padleft function in VB.net

I am trying to understand the usage of Padleft function. I wrote this code but when I display the xstring variable it doesn't show any change.

any idea?


 Dim xstring As String = "abcadabraheroColorado"
        xstring = xstring.PadLeft(4, "PPPP")

Pad will take effect when your string lenght is lower than the 1st argument of PadLeft. In that case, PadLeft() will add characters up to the lenght specified. By example, try with:
xstring = xstring.PadLeft(40, "PPPP")
