If I have an integer with 1 or 2 digits e.g. 1 or 9 or 11 how can I display it as two digits?

i.e.
01, 09 and 11

There must be a function of something instead of inspecting the int and adding a '0' to the begining of it if it is only 1 digit long

Thanks

Hi se402036se,

Msgbox MyInteger.ToString("00")

It is the display that is important, a numeric cannot have formatting so you need to convert it to a string with the appropriate formatting.

You can also try MyInteger.ToString.Padleft(2, "0")
