Python's str.rjust(~) method returns a right-justified (aligned) string with the specified length.

Parameters

1. width | number

The length of the return string.

2. fillchar | character | optional

The character to use for padding. Default is " " (space).

Return value

A right-justified string padded to the specified width.

If the specified width is less than the length of the original string, the original string is returned.

Examples

Basic usage

To return a right-justified string of length 6 for "Dog":

x = "Dog"
x.rjust(6)
' Dog'

Note that there are three space characters before Dog to make the returned string 6 characters.

Fillchar parameter

To return a right-justified string of length 6 for "Dog" using '*' as the padding character:

y = "Dog"
y.rjust(6, '*')
'***Dog'

Now there are three '*' characters before 'Dog' to make the returned string 6 characters.

Width less than length of original string

To return a right-justified string of length 2 for "Dog" using '*' as the padding character:

z = "Dog"
z.rjust(2, '*')
'Dog'

As the provided width of 2 was less than the length of "Dog", a copy of the original string is returned.
