You can't exactly do that. As you have probably seen if you supply an integer the value 00001 it will be 1 because that is numerically what you are giving it. An integer will not hold places as a data type it will store the value you supply it.

Now for display purposes you can cause an integer to display on the screen that way using string custom formatting like this (sorry close as I can get'cha).

EX.

        Dim i As Integer = 10

        Dim j As String = i.ToString("000000000")

        Response.Write(j)

        'Produces 000000010 if i=1
        'Produces 000000010 if i=10

Sorry I wrote that last bit wrong:
        'Produces 000000001 if i=1
        'Produces 000000010 if i=10
         '...etc

int num;
            num = 1;
            Response.Write(string.Format("{0:0000000000}",num));

try this

when you give input 1 it will add 9 0's before it

if you giove 12 it will add 8 0's before it

Variables of type int are able to store value from -2,147,483,648 to 2,147,483,647, so you can use it to store 10 digits integer data.

To display it with 0-padding, you can use the formatting options, example:
int i = 123;
string format = "0000000000";
Console.WriteLine(i.ToString(format));

That will output:
0000000123
