Format a single integer into a string

I want to format an integer into a padded string the int range will be 0 to 55

0 - 00
1 - 01
2 - 02

String strTemp = String.Format({"0#"},counter); -- this does not seem to be correct.
Would appreciate any help here - thanks in advance

Pick your favorite.

int value = 1; //42;
char buff[3];
char hbuff[3];
String crap;

void setup() {
  Serial.begin(115200);
  sprintf(buff, "%02d", value);
  Serial.println(buff);
  hbuff[0] = (value / 10 ) + '0';
  hbuff[1] = (value % 10 ) + '0';
  Serial.println(hbuff);
  crap = String(value);
  if (crap.length() < 2) {
    crap = "0" + crap;
  }
  Serial.println(crap);
}
void loop() {}
01
01
01

@dolittle Please post a link to the page describing that String.Format() function, I have not seen that before and it sounds useful.

You could try

String strTemp = (counter < 10 ? "0" : "") + String(counter);

another option


char buffer[10];

void setup() {
  Serial.begin(115200); Serial.println();
  for (int value = 0; value < 12; value++) {
    snprintf(buffer , sizeof buffer, "%02d", value);
    Serial.print(value);
    Serial.print(F("\t-> ["));
    Serial.print(buffer);
    Serial.println(F("]"));
  }
}

void loop() {}

Serial Monitor (@ 115200 bauds) will show

0	-> [00]
1	-> [01]
2	-> [02]
3	-> [03]
4	-> [04]
5	-> [05]
6	-> [06]
7	-> [07]
8	-> [08]
9	-> [09]
10	-> [10]
