    Default integer with leading zero?!

    Hi,

    is it possible to output an integer with a leading zero??

    01,02,03...


    String.format and DecimalFormat are OK but both return String, and when i convert the String in Int then the leading zeros disappear...

    thx in advance

    That's what happens, an int never has leading zeros. Only the String representation can display a leading zero.

    what do you mean by output? most likely, your output is a string anyways.

    Who cares? A String is a wrapped char[]
