I need to add leading zeroes to an input box.
For example, the user enters "2" , I need to convert to a three digit number eg."002".
If the user enters a three digit number leave it alone.

thanks for your help .

however this should help:

<script ....>
var num = "2";
var zero = "0";
if(num.length==1)
{
  result = zero + zero + num;
}
else if(num.length==2)
{
  result = zero + num;
}
</script>

Im not sure why var num = "2"?
The user can enter any numerical value. If the user enters a one or double digit number zeroes need to be added. The maximum length of string is 3.

marcelo27:

i was giving an example and num is what you have to assign, my primary objective is to let you know that my function works :) if i didn't put the num there and an example value, you wouldn't be able to see the working code and it would be harder to understand.

hope that explains why i put "2" as num, you can put and assign any number from anywhere to the num variable.
