    Hi,

    this is what I want:
    if (foo) {

    }

    This is set: Options/Text-Editor/C/C++ (VGDB)/Formatting/Extra New Line for control Blocks = false
    But no effect!

    if (foo)
    {

    }

    this is not what I want…
    What can I do to  change this behavior?

    TT

    Hi,

    Most likely, you are using VisualGDB with clang-format. Please try clicking on the “format document” icon in the top right corner of the text editor (near the “go” button). It will open a detailed editor for the clang-format style file.

    Hi,

    no chance to find the mentioned button
    Where is the default clang-style-format located?

    Please a little nudge…

    Thanks for the screenshot. Looks like you are using the legacy formatter, so the clang-format settings are irrelevant.

    We have double-checked the configuration you mentioned. The option you mentioned controls an extra newline between “{” and “}”. In order to control whether “{” gets on a separate line, please use the “New control blocks” option instead.
