    Default Fill

    I am a powerbuilder programmer and currently we are migrating our PB application to java.
    In PB we have a function called fill()
    EG:
    Fill("*", 35)
    This statement returns a string whose value is 35 stars:

    is there any function like this available in java?

    A simple for loop adding the specified count to a String (or better yet a StringBuilder) would do the trick. See
    The for Statement (The Java™ Tutorials > Learning the Java Language > Language Basics)
    Strings (The Java™ Tutorials > Learning the Java Language > Numbers and Strings)
