Code Style. ActionScript
Use this page to configure formatting options for ActionScript files. When you change these settings, the Preview pane shows how this will affect your code.
Tabs and Indents
|Use tab character|
The Smart tabs checkbox is available if the Use tab character checkbox is selected.
|Tab size||In this field, specify the number of spaces included in a tab.|
|Indent||In this field, specify the number of spaces to be inserted for each indent level.|
|Continuation indent||In this field, specify the number of spaces to be inserted between the elements of an array, in expressions, method declarations and method calls.|
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 checkbox 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, and so on) The right-hand pane shows the preview.
Alignment takes precedence over indentation options.
Hard wrap at
Use the Hard wrap at field to specify a margin space required on the right side of an element. If you select the Default option, then a value of the right margin from the global settings is used.
Wrap on typing
Use the Wrap on typing settings to specify how the edited text is fitted in the specified Hard wrap at:
Default: in this case IntelliJ IDEA uses the Wrap on typing option that is specified in the global settings.
Yes: in this case IntelliJ IDEA uses the value specified in the Right Margin field.
No: in this case this option is switched off and a line can exceed the value specified in the right margin.
Use the Visual guides field to specify multiple right margins. You can leave a default value or enter the number of spaces for your margin. If you want to specify several margins, enter numbers separated by comma.
Keep when reformatting
Use the checkboxes to configure exceptions that IntelliJ IDEA will make when reformatting the source code. For example, by default, the Line breaks checkbox is selected. If your code contains lines that are shorter than a standard convention, you can convert them by disabling the Line breaks checkbox 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, method declaration parameters, or assignment statements).
From this list, select the desired wrapping style:
|Align when multiline||If this checkbox 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.|
|Select this checkbox to have the specified character or characters moved to the next line when the lines are wrapped.|
|'else' on new line||Use this checkbox to have the corresponding statements or characters moved to the next line.|
|New line after ||Select this checkbox to have the code after the specified character moved to a new line.|
|Special else if treatment|
If this checkbox is selected,
|Indent case branches||If this checkbox is selected, the |
Braces placement options
|Braces placement style|
Use this list to specify the position of the opening brace in class declarations, method declarations, and other types of declarations. The available options are:
From this list, choose the braces introduction method for
Chained method calls
Use the following options to format chained method calls and make them easier to read. Note that builder method calls are always wrapped regardless of the settings for chained calls.
|Wrap first call||Allow wrapping the first method call in chained methods.|
|Align when multiline||Align several method calls.|
Specify comma-separated names (identifiers) of methods that you want to be treated as builder methods.
|Keep builder methods indents||Keep additional indents that you insert manually intact as you reformat code.|
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.
|Keep maximum blank lines||In this area, specify the number of blank lines to be kept after reformatting in the specified locations.|
|Minimum blank lines|
In this area, specify the number of blank lines to be present in the specified locations.
|Indent package statement children||Select this checkbox to have the nested statements of package statements indented on code reformatting.|
|Align C-style comments /*...*/||Select this checkbox to adjust lines in C-style comments.|
|Align object properties||From the drop-down list, select the type of objects' alignment: |
|Field prefix||In this text box, specify the prefix to be used in ActionScript fields.|
|Property prefix||In this text box, specify the prefix to be used in ActionScript properties.|
|Use semicolon to terminate statements||Select this checkbox to have statements terminated with a semicolon.|
|Spaces before type reference colon ':'||Select this checkbox to separate type reference with the space before colon.|
|Spaces after type reference colon ':'||Select this checkbox to separate type reference with the space after colon.|
This tab lets you define a set of rules that rearranges your code according to your preferences.
Use this area to set the grouping rules.
Use this area to define elements order as a list of rules, where every rule has a set of matches such as modifier or type.
Use this area to create a new matching rule or edit an existing one. You can select from the following filters:
|This icon appears when you select Order by Name from the Order list. The icon indicates that the items in this rule are sorted alphabetically.|
