Right justify text field, vb.net

Hi There,

I have a small app that drills into a database and displays the results in a datagrid. The user can then edit the records then save the results to a .txt file which is then e-mailed to a recipient.

The text file is formatted a certain way with some fields padded out and some fields truncated. However i need to right justify a couple of fields but cannot see a way of doing this. I am using vb.net 2003.

Many Thanks,

Without seeing your code that saves the data to a text file it is hard to make recommendations.

As a generalization, you probably want String.PadLeft() and String.PadRight():

Hi,

thanks for the reply. I was just being stupid. The pad left would have the same functionality as right justify!
