I'm leaving this here because I wrote it after I found there wasn't a built in way to do this.

It supports "Default" keyword to keep parameters, as default (obviously...) and also LEFT and RIGHT directions to pad the string.

ConsoleWrite(StringPad("1", Default, 3, "LEFT") & @CRLF)

Func StringPad($padVal, $padString = "0", $padLength = 3, $padDirection = "LEFT")
    Local $finString = ""

    If $padString = Default Then $padString = 0
    If $padLength = Default Then $padLength = 3
    If $padDirection = Default Then $padDirection = "LEFT"

    $padDirection = StringUpper($padDirection)

    $finString = "" & $padVal

    While StringLen($finString) < $padLength
        If $padDirection == "LEFT" Then
            $finString = $padString & $finString
            $finString = $finString & $padString

    Return $finString

I'm sure nobody will find a use for it, but I know I'll need it again some time...

I wrote something similar to add leading zero(s) to position numbers:


#include <String.au3>

; Example(s).
MsgBox(0, "Example1", _StringPos(1, 3), 0, GUICreate(""))
MsgBox(0, "Example2", _StringPos("1", "3"), 0, GUICreate(""))

Func _StringPos($xSP_PositionNumber, $xSP_PositionLength = 3)
    $xSP_PositionLength = Abs($xSP_PositionLength)
    $xSP_PositionNumber = Abs($xSP_PositionNumber)
    If $xSP_PositionLength >= StringLen($xSP_PositionNumber) Then
        Return SetError(0, 0, StringFormat("%0" & $xSP_PositionLength & "i", $xSP_PositionNumber))
    Return SetError(1, 0, _StringRepeat("#", $xSP_PositionLength))
