sprintf _nothing_ ??


    Sep 05 2006 | 4:06 pm
    hi
    I am using sprintf in the following format : [sprintf %s%s:%s%s], which lets me have a nice clock in a LCD (or message box probably) in a format something like 12:45, or 01:56
    that's fine
    now when i want to see negative values ( how long to wait until something happens...) i can easily have -10:21 (still fine) but i would like to have also -4:39...
    meaning i would like the first %s (leftmost) to output nothing...... for the moment i just output a dot (.) so my format is .-4:54... but is there a way to input something which will be output as nothing???
    many thanks

      Something like this may help: [sprintf %02d:%.2d] You just need to send the 2 int numbers, without having to think to the 0 padding.
      I hope it helps!
