On this page:

Spaces

Use this tab to specify where you want spaces in your code. To have IntelliJ IDEA automatically insert a space at a location, select the check box next to this location in the list. The results are displayed in the Preview pane.

Wrapping and braces

In this tab, customize the code style options, which IntelliJ IDEA will apply on reformatting the source code. The left-hand pane contains the list of exceptions (Keep when reformatting), and placement and alignment options for the various code constructs (lists, statements, operations, annotations, etc.). The right-hand pane shows preview.

Alignment takes precedence over indentation options.

Keep When Reformatting

Use the check boxes to configure exceptions that IntelliJ IDEA will make when reformatting the source code. For example, by default, the Line brakes check box is selected. If your code contains lines that are shorter than a standard convention, you can convert them by disabling the Line brakes check box before you reformat the source code.

Wrapping Options

The wrapping style applies to the various code constructs, specified in the left-hand pane (for example, method call arguments, or assignment statements).

Item Description
Wrapping style From this drop-down list, select the desired wrapping style:
  • Do not wrap - when this option is selected, no special wrapping style is applied.

    With this option selected, the nested alignment and braces settings are ignored.

  • Wrap if long - select this option to have lines going beyond the right margin wrapped with proper indentation.
  • Chop down if long - select this option to have elements in lists that go beyond the right margin wrapped so that there is one element per line with proper indentation.
  • Wrap always - select this option to have all elements in lists wrapped so that there is one element per line with proper indentation.

Alignment Options

Item Description
<character(s)> on next line Select this check box to have the specified character or characters moved to the next line when the lines are wrapped.
New line after <character> Select this check box to have the code after the specified character moved to a new line.
Place on new line Use this check box to have the corresponding statements or characters moved to the next line.
Align when multiline If this check box is selected, a code construct starts at the same column on each next line. Otherwise, the position of a code construct is determined by the current indentation level.
Special else if treatment If this check box is selected, else if statements are located in the same line.

Otherwise, else if statements are moved to the next line to the corresponding indent level.

Indent case branches If this check box is selected, the case statement is located at the corresponding indent level. Otherwise, case statement is placed at the same indent level with switch.

Braces placement options

Item Description
Braces placement style Use this drop-down list to specify the position of the opening brace in class declarations, method declarations, and other types of declarations. The available options are:
  • End of line - select this option to have the opening brace placed at the declaration line end.
  • Next line if wrapped - select this option to have the opening brace placed at the beginning of the line after the multiline declaration line.
  • Next line - select this option to have the opening brace placed at the beginning of the line after the declaration line.
  • Next line shifted - select this option to have the opening brace placed at the line after the declaration line being shifted to the corresponding indent level.
  • Next line each shifted - select this option to have the opening brace placed at the line after the declaration line being shifted to the corresponding indent level, and have the next line shifted to the next indent level as well.
Force braces From this drop-down list, choose the braces introduction method for if, for, while, and do () while statements. The available options are:
  • Do not force - select this option to suppress introducing braces automatically.
  • When multiline - select this option to have braces introduced automatically, if a statement occupies more than one line. Note that IntelliJ IDEA analyzes the number of lines in the entire statement but not only its condition. For example, if the code is
    <?php if (true) return false;
    %product will insert braces automatically:
    <?php if (true) { return false; }
  • Always - select this check box to have braces always introduced automatically.

Blank lines

Use this tab to define where and how many blank lines you want IntelliJ IDEA to retain and insert in your code after reformatting. For each type of location, specify the number of blank lines to be inserted. The results are displayed in the Preview pane.

Item Description
Keep Maximum Blank Lines In this area, specify the number of blank lines to be kept after reformatting in the specified locations.
In code Use this field to set the number of the blank lines.

Set From

Click this link to choose the base for the current language default code style from the pop-up list, that appears. The list contains two options:

  • Language: choose this option to inherit the coding style settings from another language. Select the source language from the list, that opens. So doing, only the settings that are applicable to the current language are taken. All the other settings are not affected.
  • Predefined code style: choose this option to use the coding standards defined for a specific framework. Select one of the following frameworks from the list:

This link appears in the upper-right corner of the language-specific code style page, when applicable.
