Padding a string from the end

The padEnd() method also adds padding to a string with another string until it reaches the given length. The method applies padding from the end of the string.

This method also accepts two arguments - finalLength and paddingString. The first argument gives the length of the resulting string and the second argument gives the string used for padding.

In the example given above, we are padding the string Oliver with the paddingString # until the length of Oliver reaches the value given by finalLength i.e. 10.

In the example given above, the value of finalLength is less than the length of the original string. Therefore, it returns the original string without padding.

In the example given above, since the length of paddingString is greater than the value of finalLength, it only pads the left-most part. The rest of the paddingString is skipped.

In the example given above, since we do not provide the paddingString argument, it takes the default value " ".
