public void set_re_pad(int re_pad) throws DbException;


Set the padding character for short, fixed-length records for the Queue and Recno access methods.

If no pad character is specified, <space> characters (that is, ASCII 0x20) are used for padding.

The Db.set_re_pad method configures a database, not only operations performed using the specified Db handle.

The Db.set_re_pad interface may not be called after the interface is called. If the database already exists when is called, the information specified to Db.set_re_pad will be ignored.

The Db.set_re_pad method throws an exception that encapsulates a non-zero error value on failure.


The Db.set_re_pad method may fail and throw an exception encapsulating a non-zero error for the following conditions:

An invalid flag value or parameter was specified.

Called after was called.

The Db.set_re_pad method may fail and throw an exception for errors specified for other Berkeley DB and C library or system methods. If a catastrophic error has occurred, the Db.set_re_pad method may fail and throw a DbRunRecoveryException, in which case all subsequent Berkeley DB calls will fail in the same way.
