    string.writeline format

    Hello everyone,


    For the following code, what means {0, 3}? I have searched MSDN but can not find the related format description.

    Code:
    String.WriteLine ("{0, 3} : {1}", str1, str2);

    thanks in advance,
    George

    Unless that man is named "george2" it would seem.

    Just stop spoonfeeding "STFW" answers.
    If you dance barefoot on the broken glass of undefined behaviour, you've got to expect the occasional cut.
    If at first you don't succeed, try writing your phone number on the exam paper.

    Well, it was a hint to google more and a link to a page where the answer could be found if read. It's not like I gave the answer directly. According to the guide you so kindly posted in another thread it seemed like a proper response to vampires.
