question about setw();

I'm trying to figure out the details to setw(). One thing is that if I were to store a string into a string variable and then try to setw() before it it won't happen. I'm sure there's a reason it won't, but is there a work around? For instance:

string myString = "This is my string
int i;
i = myString.lenth();
cout << setw(i+10) << myString;

If memory serves, setw() only works w/ integer and string types. Is this correct? I assume it doesn't work w/ string variables, unless I'm doing something wrong.
