Hello,

I have a question that borrow me a few months now. I hope to find a solution here.

I have a string (String) that contains in all 3 Blocks. Means I have
Block1 like 00000000
Block2  Data like: 00 00 00 00 00 00 00 00 00 00 00 00 00 00 00 00  
block3  = thisisstringgggg
Every block is "spliited" by a space. So the complete string has:
"00000000 00 00 00 00 00 00 00 00 00 00 00 00 00 00 00 00 thisisstringgggg"
The problem is now, that the string content is everyline different and contains differnt chars. So the String do not have the same pixeldimension each line.
How is it possible to format the string this way that if I print it to a printer or save to a text file will have the same dimension so it looks like one line and not like "zickzack".

00000000 00 00 00 00 00 00 00 00 00 00 00 00 00 00 00 00 thisisstringgggg
00MMFF0F 00 MM FF 00 00 00 00 00 00 00 00 00 00 00 00 00 TTisisstringgggg
II0II000 00 00 00 00 00 00 II 00 00 00 00 00 00 00 00 00 iiisisstringgggg

Thanks,
Ingo

the recommended way for these blocks that have to be aligned is to use a fixed-width font, like Courier New, so whichever is your printing method, use this kind of font.

That looks suspiciously like the format of a Visual Studio memory window :)
