Owning Class: string
Requires: MathScript RT Module
str = sprintf(format, a)
str = sprintf(format, b, ...)
Formats the input data as a string. sprintf(format, a) applies a format until LabVIEW formats all the data in a or an error occurs. If a is a 2D matrix, LabVIEW formats a in column-wise order. sprintf(format, b, ...) formats the input data based on the corresponding format specifier. If you specify b, the number of specifiers in format must match the number of data elements in b.
|a||Specifies the data you want to format as a string. a is a double-precision, floating-point number, a string, or a 1D or 2D matrix of those data types.|
|b||Specifies the data you want to format as a string. b is a double-precision, floating-point number, or a string.|
|format||Specifies the format you want to apply to a or b. format must use appropriate format specifier syntax. format is a string.|
|str||Returns a or b as a formatted string.|
