Surrounding Blocks of Code with Language Constructs
The Surround with feature allows you easily put expressions or statements within blocks or language constructs. This feature in IntelliJ IDEA applies to:
|XML/HTML /JSP/JSPX tags||
|Custom folding region comments||Any fragment of code, where Surround With is applicable|
To surround a block of code
- Select the desired code fragment.
- Do one of the following:
- On the main menu, choose Code | Surround With
- Press Ctrl+Alt+T.
A pop-up window displays the list of enclosing statements according to the context.
- Select the desired surround statement from the list. To do that, use the mouse cursor, up and down arrow keys, or a shortcut key displayed next to each element of the list.
