Surround Code Fragments with Language-Specific Constructs

IntelliJ IDEA provides standard templates for surrounding code fragments with various constructs based on the language of the source code. This includes if...else conditional statements, do...while and for loops, combinations of try...catch...finally, XML tags, folding regions, and other constructs.

Surround a code block with language constructs

  1. Select the desired code fragment.

  2. On the Code menu, click Surround With (Ctrl+Alt+T).

  3. Select the necessary surround statement from the list.

This feature applies to the following languages (contexts):
