I am trying to write a code which will combine these values and format it in the following format to be used as control/validation ID. I have written a line of code that will merge these values together into a long string but I can't get the zeros to fill in. For month, I get 4 instead of 04 and for numeric value I get 1 digit number instead of having numbers with 0 padding to the left.
Can anyone help me put these in order?
'IN' + Year(YYYY) + Month(MM) + Numeric(0000)
Control 1 for April 2011
Control 2 for April 2011
Control 1 for May 2011
Dim TestMonth As String = Format(Month(Now), "MM") Dim TestYear As String = Format(Year(Now), "YYYY") Dim TestNum As Integer txtTest1.Text = "IN" & TestYear & TestMonth & ToString(TestNum+1)
