[ integer->asString ]

Method

The [integer->asString] method formats the integer as a string. This method replaces the [Integer->SetFormat] tag from Lasso 8.x and earlier. In Lasso 9 integers and decimals have no state, and so they cannot carry around their formatting information.

Parameter Description
-hexaDecimal Expresses the integer as a hexadecimal value.
-padding Specifies the desired width in character of the output.
-padChar Specifies the character to use to pad the output. Defaults to a space.
-padRight If set to True the output will be padded on the right. By default the output will be padded on the left.
-groupChar Specifies the desired character to use for thousands grouping. Defaults to the empty string so thousands grouping is not performed.
  • Syntax
Integer Value->asString(
	-hexadecaim = Boolean Value,
	-padding = Integer Value,
	-padChar = 'Character Value',
	-padRight = Boolean Value,
	-groupchar = 'Character Value'
)
