hi,

is there a simple way to add pre-zero's to an integer?

i want to count till 1000 but i do not want to just count from 1 to 1000, i want to count from 0001 to 1000.
i know i can do this the long way by checking its length and for each length that its smaller then 4 add a 0 infront.
but i was wondering if there was an easy way for it.

Hi PatrickAdrichem,

How about using:

$num = 1;
$str_num = str_pad($num, 4, '0', STR_PAD_LEFT);

And then use intval() when you need to increment
