Hi experts,

I am new to JBuilder and wonder if anyone knows how to set up the text editor, so it will be easier to edit the codes? I mean like tab indent, block indent? Also, what is the convention in terms of the format of the code? Whould the function start at the first line, or not? thanks.

1. Try "Run>Run Project" command on menu bar.
2. In the Project Properties dialog box goto Formatting tab.

There are a couple of styles that are generally accepted...

This is the one Sun recommends:

I personally prefer to have opening braces "{" on a new line rather than at the end of a function definition, or for block...  I just prefer it

*shrug*

So long as you can defend your style, and you are consistent, and it doesn't annoy your co-workers, there shouldn't be a problem ;-)
