Keyboard Shortcuts in Visual Studio

For your comfort there are keyboard shortcuts in Visual Studio, which we will explain later in this chapter, but for now we are interested in 2 specific combinations. One of the combinations is for formatting the code in the whole document, and the other one - ofr formatting a part of the code. If we want to format the whole codewe need to predd [CTRL + K + D]. In case we need to format only a part of the code, we need to mark this part with the mouse and press [CTRL + K + F].

Let's use the wrong example from earlier:

for(int i=0;i<5;i++){
Console.WriteLine(i);
}

If we press [CTRL + K + D], which is the combination to format the whole document, we will have a code, formatted according to the accepted conventions for C#, which will look as follows:

for (int i = 0; i < 5; i++)
{
    Console.WriteLine(i);
}

This key kombination can help us if we found a badly formatted code.
