*result*=

**Whex**(

*number*[,

*digits*] )

**Parameters:**

*number*
A whole number or expression evaluating to a whole number.

*digits*
Optional number of digits to return.

**Return Value:**

Returns a hexadecimal

`wstring`representation of`, truncated or padded with zeros (`*number*`"0"`) to fit the number of digits, if specified.**Description:**

Hexadecimal digits range from

If you specify

The length of the wstring will not go longer than the maximum number of digits required for the type of

`0`-`9`, or`A`-`F`.If you specify

`>`*digits*`0`, the resulting`wstring`will be exactly that length. It will be truncated or padded with zeros on the left, if necessary.The length of the wstring will not go longer than the maximum number of digits required for the type of

`(8 for a`*expression*`long`, 16 for floating point or`longint`)**Examples:**

Print Hex(54321)

Print Hex(54321, 2)

Print Hex(54321, 5)

Print Hex(54321, 2)

Print Hex(54321, 5)

will produce the output:

D431 31 0D431
