| In this field, specify the expression to have the value of the corresponding template input field calculated automatically. |
This expression may contain the following constructs:
Type an expression manually or select a predefined function from the list. The list shows also the number and type of parameters, if any, for the selected function. The available functions are listed alphabetically in the Functions table.
|In this field, specify the default string to be entered in the corresponding input field of the expanded template, if the expression does not give any result after calculation. |
Note that a default value of a variable is an expression that can refer to other live template variables. To define the default value as a literal, enclose it in quotation marks.
Skip if defined
Select this checkbox to have CLion proceed with the next input field, if the value of the current input field is defined.
Move Up / Move Down
Use these buttons to change the order of variables in the list. The order of variables in the table determines the order in which CLion will switch between the corresponding input fields when the template is expanded.
Functions used in live template variables
Converts a string into camelCase.
Capitalizes the first letter of a string.
Capitalizes all the letters of a string, and inserts an underscore between the parts.
Returns the contents of the system clipboard.
Invokes code completion at the position of the variable.
Invokes smart type completion at the position of the variable.
Returns a concatenation of all the strings passed to the function as parameters.
Returns the current system date.
By default, without a parameter, it returns the date in the current system format. To use a different format, provide a parameter according to the SimpleDateFormat specification. For example, the
Replaces the first letter of a string with the corresponding lowercase letter.
Returns the default value if the expression is used in the return statement. Uses the
Returns a list of strings suggested for completion when the template expands.
Escapes special characters so that the result can be used in a Java string.
For example, it replaces the tab character with
Returns the name of the current file with its extension.
Returns the name of the current file without its extension.
Returns the absolute path to the current file.
Returns the current file path relative to the current project. To check what the relative path is for a given file, right-click it and select Copy Reference, or press Ctrl+Alt+Shift+C.
Returns the first word of the string passed as the parameter.
Returns the current line number.
Converts a string into lower case and inserts n-dashes as separators. For example,
Returns the list of visible objects that contain member functions, listed as parameters.
Finds all occurrences of
Declares the left-side variable with a type of the right-side expression.
Some predefined templates in the iterations group use the
Compare to castToLeftSideType().
Converts a string into snake_case. For example,
Returns the specified string with spaces as separators. For example,
Replaces spaces with underscores in the string passed as the parameter. For example,
Returns the substring up to the specified delimiter. This is helpful for removing the extensions in test file names. For example,
Returns all variables that may be assigned to the type passed as the parameter.
This is similar to variableOfType() but does not suggest
Returns a suggested name for the index variable in an iteration from most commonly used ones:
Some of the predefined templates in the iterations group (
Suggests the name for a variable based on the variable type and its initializer expression, according to your code style settings that refer to the variable naming rules.
For example, if it is a variable that holds an element within an iteration, CLion makes a guess on the most reasonable name taking into account the name of the iterated container. Some of the predefined templates in the iterations group (
Returns the current system time.
By default, without a parameter, it returns the time in the current system format. To use a different format, provide a parameter according to the SimpleDateFormat specification. For example, the
Transforms a string with underscores (like snake_case) into camelCase. For example,
Transforms underscores in a string to spaces. For example,
Returns the name of the current user.
Returns a variable that is an instance of the object used as a range expression in a loop.
Returns a variables that is an instance of the object that contains
