Format String help

Posted on 16th Feb 2014 07:03 pm by admin

I have a textbox where a person enters an application number. the application number is 10 characters in length:ex: 000012345A0256775434
My clients only want to enter in the numbers without the leading zeros. This is fine but I want to be able to take the numbers they enter and then add in the leading zeros. So essentially I want to format whatever string they enter to make sure they all conform to the 10 characters in length whereby the zeros are added in if it is not. I thought I could so something like this.textbox.ToString("0000000000"). But that doesnt seem to work. Any ideas.?
