Parameters

uValue
Type: Usual
A character, numeric, or date value to pad with a fill character.
nLength
Type: Int32
The length of the string to return.
cFillChar (Optional)
Type: String
The character with which to pad <uValue>.
The default is a space character.

Return Value

Type: String
A string containing <uValue> and padded with <cFillChar> to a total length of <nLength>.
If the length of <uValue> exceeds <nLength>, Pad() truncates cPaddedString to <nLength>.
Remarks
PadC is the same as Pad() except that PadC() centers <uValue> within <nLength> and adds fill characters on both the left and right sides.
For more information, see Pad(). PadC() is the inverse of AllTrim(), which trims both leading and trailing space from strings.
