hi all,
is it possible to format the decimal display of numeric values ?? i mean, i want 1 to be displayed as 001 and 2 as 002, like that 10 will be displayed as 010 .... i hope my question is clear !!

I love visiting this board because it makes me go out and learn stuff. Try this:

There are a number of formatters in the JDK. Look at classes derived from Format.

A good question is never answered. It is not a bolt to be tightened into place but a seed to be planted and to bear more seed toward the hope of greening the landscape of the idea. John Ciardi
