im struggling with something simple, that i cant figure out, or im on the wrong track.
the user must enter an id of any sort, 1 - 8 numbers, if it is less than 8 numbers it must be left padded with 0s. and the 1st character must b a Alphanumeric char.
sofar on my masked textbox i got this as the mask
L00000000 as this does what i want, but doesnt left pad with the 0s.
is there a simple way to fill the empty spaces with 0s? or am i going to use a for loop that will add a 0 to the front(after the Letter .
