Hi,

if (a < 1) {
			System.out.println("aa");
		}

		else {
			System.out.println("false");
		}
		

Open in new window

           
            i want as below so that i can see inner if and related inner else etc in big chain of if loops

            
if (a < 1) {
			System.out.println("aa");
		}else {
			System.out.println("false");
		}

Open in new window

In one of my example with if loop i get error like below

Syntax error on token(s), misplaced construct(s)
