Formatting Code in Visual Studio can be done using the Keyboard shortcuts as below

  • On Windows Shift + Alt + F
  • On Mac Shift + Option + F
  • On Ubuntu Ctrl + Shift + I

you can also find these as well as other shortcuts, through the search functionality provided in the editor with Ctrl +Shift+ P (or Command + Shift + P on Mac), and then search for format document.

For Php developer, if you are working on php you should download php extension format code.

Press F1 and type : ext install PHP Code Format .

Then Shift + Alt + F will work

You can add a keybinding in Preferences --> Keyboard shortcuts.

{ "key": "cmd+k cmd+d", "command": "editor.action.formatDocument" }

Or Visual Studio like:

{ "key": "ctrl+k ctrl+d", "command": "editor.action.formatDocument" }

You can also right-click inside the document and then select "Format Document" from the available options, as shown below

OR

You can also enable "Format on save" supported in Visual Studio Code 1.6 or later.

Enable "Format On Save" by setting ( File -> Preferences -> Settings)

"editor.formatOnSave": true

If none of the above works, you can also, simply install VS Code, code format plugins like

https://marketplace.visualstudio.com/items?itemName=esbenp.prettier-vscode

https://unibeautify.com/docs/editors

Also, For Fedora or Linux

  • You can click File -> Preferences -> Keyboard shortcuts.
  • Under Default Keyboard Shortcuts, search (Ctrl + F) for editor.action.format.

You will find the shortcut key there, as shown below  (Windows Example, but same in Fedora)
