Formatting Number with Leading Zeroes in C#

The .NET Framework provides the format strings like “D” and “X” which can be easily used by the developers to format the number with leading zeroes in C#.

For example , assume that the number is 589 and you want it to print as 00589 , you could use the format specifier “D5” where 5 is the total number of digits of the number to output.
