General Formatter Style
ReSharper's formatting options are configurable in a very flexible way and for each supported language separately. While this page provides a few general settings, the language-specific pages () allow you to fine-tune code formatting according to your coding standards and practices.
The options that you configure on this page apply in the following cases:
When code is automatically formatted on editing or after pasting (you can toggle auto-formatting on the page of ReSharper options.
When you reformat existing code.
How to indent multi-language files
Auto-detect indent size and style
When you reformat a part of code in a file or when code is auto-formatted on editing or pasting, ReSharper can calculate and apply indentation based on the existing indents in that file.
You can also toggle the auto-detecting indents preference and view its status in the File Formatting Info window.
Note also, that if you enable auto-detecting indents, or indents in ReSharper settings, or if you have .editorconfig files that affect the current file, then indents from these sources are temporary saved in Visual Studio settings while the affected file is open and active in Visual Studio.
Default line ending style
ReSharper allows you to use custom line endings in your code, and you can use this selector to choose which line ending style should be used.
Code style configuration files
Enable EditorConfig support
EditorConfig is a configuration file convention that is used to define and maintain consistent code styles between team members working on the same code as well as between different editors and IDEs that they might use. The styles are saved in INI-like files named .editorconfig, where section names are file masks and properties inside a section define code styles for files matching that masks.Use this check box to make ReSharper respect code formatting styles defined in EditorConfig configuration files. For more information, see Using EditorConfig.
Enable Clang-Format styles support
Clang-Format is a widely-used C++ code formatter. As it provides an option to define code style options in YAML-formatted files — named .clang-format or _clang-format — these files often become a part of your project where you keep all code style rules.
Enable StyleCop support
If you use EditorConfig and StyleCop configuration files simultaneously, the EditorConfig settings will always take precedence over both StyleCop and ReSharper settings. This means that if settings from settings.stylecop do not give desired results for some reason, you can always override specific settings using EditorConfig properties.By default, ReSharper does not read settings from settings.stylecop files. To start taking these settings into account, enable Enable StyleCop support on the page of ReSharper options in addition to this checkbox.
Provide ReSharper indent settings to Visual Studio
If this option is enabled, ReSharper will provide indenting preferences (both from its layer-based settings and from supported configuration files) to Visual Studio, so that they are used when the code is created or transformed using Visual Studio features.
Show indicator in status bar when EditorConfig is present
If this option is enabled, ReSharper displays the icon in the bottom right part of the Visual Studio window if there are any code style configuration files that apply to the current solution. You can double-click this icon to study active EditorConfig configurations in the File Formatting Info window.
