Tabs and indents
|Use tab character||
If this check box is selected, tab characters are used:
- On pressing the Tab key
- For indentation
- For code reformatting
When the check box is cleared, CLion uses spaces instead of tabs.
If this check box is selected, CLion inserts tabs for indentation and reformatting,
but fine alignment to a necessary column is done
only via spaces without replacing them with tabs.
This is done in order to preserve visual
representation of the source code, when the
If this check box is cleared, only tabs are used. This means that a group of spaces that fits the specified tab size is automatically replaced with a tab,
which may result in breaking fine alignment.
The Smart Tabs check box is available if the Use Tab Character
check box is selected.
|Tab size||In this text box, specify the number of spaces included in a tab.|
|Indent||In this text box, specify the number of spaces (or tabs if the
Use Tab Character
check box is selected) to be inserted for each indent level.
|Continuation indent||In this text box, specify the number of spaces (or tabs if the
Use Tab Character check box is selected) to be inserted at the next line in case of a construct break.|
|Keep indents on empty lines||If this check box is selected, then CLion will keep indents on the empty lines as if they have contained some code.|
If this check box is not selected, CLion will delete the tabulation characters.
|Indent in lambdas||In this field, type the indent of lambda expressions. Observe results in the preview pane. |
|Indent visibility keywords in class/structure||In this field, type the indent of the visibility keywords. Observe results in the preview pane. |
|Indent members of namespace||In this field, type the indent of members of namespaces. Observe results in the preview pane. |
Use this tab to specify where you want spaces in your code. To have CLion 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.
Use this tab to define where and how many blank lines you want CLion 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.
|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.|
Wrapping and braces
In this tab, customize the code style options, which CLion 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 CLion 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.
The wrapping style applies to the various code constructs, specified in the left-hand pane (for example, method call arguments, or assignment statements).
|Wrapping style||From this drop-down list, select the desired wrapping style:
|Ensure right margin is not exceeded||If this check box is selected, the formatter will do its best to avoid having document lines exceeding the right margin.
This option takes precedence over the Do not wrap wrapping style.|
<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 |
|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.
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.
case statement is placed at the same indent level with
|Align object properties||From the drop-down list, select the type of objects' alignment:
Do not align: the attributes in sequential lines will be not aligned.
On colon: the attributes in sequential lines will be aligned against the colon.
On value: the attributes in sequential lines will be aligned against the value.
