Python String rjust() method returns a new string of a given length after substituting a given character on the left side of the original string.

Python String rjust() Method Syntax

Syntax: string.rjust(length, fillchar)

Parameters:

  • length: length of the modified string. If length is less than or equal to the length of the original string then original string is returned.
  • fillchar: (optional) characters which needs to be padded. If it’s not provided, space is taken as a default argument.

Return: Returns a new string of given length after substituting a given character in left side of original string.

Python String rjust() Method Example

Python3




string = 'geeks'
length = 8
print(string.rjust(length))


Output:

   geeks

Example 1: Python String rjust() Method with ‘fillchar’ argument provided

Here we have defined a Python string and right-adjusted it to 8 characters with fillchar as ‘*‘.

Python3




# example string
string = 'geeks'
length = 8
fillchar = '*'
 
print(string.rjust(length, fillchar))


Output:

***geeks

Example 2: Practical Example using rjust() Method

Here, we have used String rjust() method to create the half-diamond pattern.

Python3




string = "awesome"
 
max_width = len(string)
fill_char = "_"
# create the list of strings
string_lst = [string[:len(string)-index] for index in range(len(string))]
 
for item in sorted(string_lst, key=len):
    print(item.rjust(max_width, fill_char))
 
for item in sorted(string_lst[1:], key=len, reverse=True):
    print(item.rjust(max_width, fill_char))


Output:

______a
_____aw
____awe
___awes
__aweso
_awesom
awesome
_awesom
__aweso
___awes
____awe
_____aw
______a
