hello. I am messing with Textlabels.

lets imagine, i got a textlabel

then i got a number

i put that number on the gui and the text is “1”

how would i make it display “001” instead of “1” and “020” instead of “20”?

any help is appreciated!

You could use this:

```
local number=20 -- lets think 20 is your number (example)
local function getDigits(no) -- to know how many digits are in the number
local NewNumber=tostring(no)
local letters=0
for i=1, string.len(NewNumber), 1 do
letters+=1
end
return letters
end
local digits=getDigits(number)
if digits==1 then
text="00"..number
elseif digits==2 then
text="0"..number
elseif digits==3 then
text=number
end
```

Or we could just use the following:

```
local sVal = string.format("%.3d", val) -- val contains 1 or 20 or whatever value you want to convert
```

would that fr work? how are you that smart?

thanks for trying to help but @quakage was more simple and space saving!

look inside my other topics, maybe you could solve them?

thanks however! (:
