Hi. I have two ints, one is hour and the other one is minutes.
I need to show this ints in a label, formatting them properly. For example, if the hour or minutes int is less than ten (0-> 9) it should be displayed with the corresponding zeroes (00, 01, 02...)
Is there any way to get this numbers formatted?

I think this is what you want:

func _ready():
    var hour = 6
    var minute = 35
    var time = "%02d:%02d" % [hour, minute]
    print(time)  # prints "06:35"

The %02d will zero-pad each value to be 2 digits wide, adding a leading zero if necessary. See the docs here:
