PADRIGHT()

PADRIGHT()

Fills string to a certain length on the right

Syntax

       PADRIGHT( <cString>, <nLength>, [<cChar|nChar>] ) -> cString

Arguments

<cString> The string that is processed. <nLength> The selected new length for <cString>. <cChar|nChar> The character with which the beginning of the <cString> string is filled. The default value is a space, CHR(32).

Returns

The processed <cString> is returned.

Description

PADRIGHT() allows you to pad the end of a character string with characters, in accordance with a length specification. Spaces or any other characters that you choose can be used.

Notes

. The function works like the Harbour LEFT() function when <nLength> is shorter than the length of <cString>. If <nLength> is negative, PADRIGHT() returns a null string. . When the <cCharacter|nCharacter> parameter is not specified, spaces are automatically used for padding.

Examples

       .  The function works like LEFT():
              ? PADRIGHT("123456", 4)              // "1234"
           .  Pad the right with spaces:
              ? PADRIGHT("123456", 8)              // "123456  "
           .  Pad the right with the "." character:
              ? PADRIGHT("123456", 8, ".")         // "123456.."

Compliance

PADRIGHT() is compatible with CT3’s PADRIGHT().

CT_PADLEFT

 PADLEFT()
 Pads a string on the left to a particular length
------------------------------------------------------------------------------
 Syntax

     PADLEFT(<cString>,<nLength>,[<cCharacter|
        <nCharacter>]) --> cString

 Arguments

     <cString>  Designates the string that is processed.

     <nLength>  Designates the new length for <cString>.

     <cCharacter|nCharacter>  Designates the character with which the
     beginning of the <cString> string is filled.  The default value is a
     space, CHR(32).

 Returns

     The processed <cString> is returned.

 Description

     PADLEFT() allows you to pad the beginning of character strings with
     characters, in accordance with a length specification.  Spaces or any
     other characters you choose can be used.

 Notes

     .  The function works like the Clipper RIGHT() function when
        <nLength> is shorter than the length of <cString>.  If <nLength> is
        negative, PADLEFT() returns a null string.

     .  When the <cCharacter|nCharacter> parameter is not specified,
        spaces are automatically used for padding.

 Examples

     .  The function works like RIGHT():

        ? PADLEFT("123456", 4)              // "3456"

     .  Pad the left with spaces:

        ? PADLEFT("123456", 8)              // "  123456"

     .  Pad the left with the "." character:

        ? PADLEFT("123456", 8, ".")         // "..123456"
