String.prototype.padEnd()

The padEnd() method pads the current string with a given string (repeated, if needed) so that the resulting string reaches a given length. The padding is applied from the end of the current string.

Syntax

padEnd(targetLength)
padEnd(targetLength, padString)

Parameters

targetLength

The length of the resulting string once the current str has been padded. If the value is lower than str.length, the current string will be returned as-is.

padString Optional

The string to pad the current str with. If padString is too long to stay within targetLength, it will be truncated: for left-to-right languages the left-most part and for right-to-left languages the right-most will be applied. The default value for this parameter is " " (U+0020).

Return value

A String of the specified targetLength with the padString applied at the end of the current str.

Examples

Using padEnd

'abc'.padEnd(10);          // "abc       "
'abc'.padEnd(10, "foo");   // "abcfoofoof"
'abc'.padEnd(6, "123456"); // "abc123"
'abc'.padEnd(1);           // "abc"
