The center() function in python helps to make the string as center align. Along with this function, we can specify the width of the string including the padded character, and which character need to fill in the missing place.
string.center(width[, fillchar]) #where width is an integer number
The center() function takes two parameters. If the argument 'fillchar' is missing it will take space(" ") as default. The padding is done at both left and right.
|Parameter||Description||Required / Optional|
|width||the length of the returned string||Required|
The method returns a string aligned at the center with specified width and padded with a given fill character. It doesn't modify the original string.
|if arguments||Returns a string|
string = "How are you?" updated_string = string.center(24) print("Centered String is: ", updated_string )
Centered String is: How are you?
string = "How are you?" updated_string = string.center(24, '*') print("Centered String is: ", updated_string )
Centered String is: ***How are you?****
