Syntax

chr = blanks(n)

Description

example

chr = blanks(n) returns a 1-by-n array of space characters.

Examples

Create an array of five blanks. To display it, embed it in a character array that starts and ends with a visible character.

b = blanks(5);
chr = ['|' b '|']
chr = 
'|     |'

Embed the blanks in a string and display the string. Starting in R2017a, you can create strings using double quotes instead of the string function.

str = "Due Date:" + b + "2017-01-13"
str = 
"Due Date:     2017-01-13"

Input Arguments

  • If n is 0, then blanks returns a 1-by-0 character array.

  • If n is less than 0, then blanks treats it as 0.
