Hi,
I'm trying to format an integer with a leading zero before copying to an edit. I have an integer value which can be between 0 and 99. I want to format it with a leading zero and put it into a memo so that a 0 through 9 would appear as 00 through 09. Here is what i have tried:
Edit17.Text := Format('',[MyInteger]);
Edit17.Text := (Format('',[2, MyInteger]));
I've tried several different combinations of this with no luck. It keeps comming back with no leading zero. What do I need to do ?
