Document Formatting (C#)

Document Formatting allows you to enforce code formatting aspects unavailable in the Visual Studio's Code Formatting feature.

Expanded Execute Format Document Action

You can execute the Format Document action in one of the following ways:

  • Check Apply in Action and Apply on Save for the "Format document" rule on the Editor | C# | Code Cleanup options page and execute a Code Cleanup.

  • Enable "Format block on }" and/or "Format statement on ;" options on the Editor | C# | Formatting | General options page to maintain formatting as you type.

  • Create a new shortcut and bind it to the "FormatDocument" command.

    The following screencast shows how the Ctrl+G shortcut initiates a Document Formatting action:
