Pads the beginning of a variable with characters and trims the return value to the length specified.


SpecName (multiple) The name of the variable for operation result assignment

Count (multiple) The variable containing the number of total characters and the returned length of the value

Character (constant) The character to pad

ErrorMessage (multiple | optional) The error message to return when any error occurs.


Padding adds the specified character to the beginning of the variable value for the length of the Count and trims the result to the length of the Count. For example, if you pad "Four51" with "." for a count of 10 the result would be "....Four51"

Source Code

public static void PadStart(string SpecName, object Count, object Character, object ErrorMessage)
		var text = Variable(SpecName).Value;
		var pad = text.Length + (int)N(Count);
		Variable(SpecName).Value = text.PadLeft(pad, Convert.ToChar(Character)).Substring(Math.Max((int)N(Count) - text.Length, 0));
	catch (Exception ex)
		throw new Four51ActionsException(ex.Message, (string)ErrorMessage);
