Javascript leading zero string prototype

JavaScript          Trackback

When you are working with dates it is useful to have all dates formatted in a same way. For example, it is better to have all dates formatted like ‘2007-01-01’ then like ‘2007-1-1’. This is javascript prototype that can help you with this leading zeros:

<script type="text/javascript">
String.prototype.leadingZero = function(){
if (this.length == 1) return '0' + this; else return this;
//show how it works
test1 = '1';  // we need zero here
test2 = '02'; // don't need zero

document.write ('"' + test1.leadingZero() + '"<br>');
document.write ('"' + test2.leadingZero() + '"<br>');
