Surround code fragments

PhpStorm 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.

  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.
