clang-format: fix formatting of ObjC @synchronized blocks

Authored by Typz on Feb 9 2018, 1:13 AM.



The blocks used to be formatted using the "default" behavior, and would
thus be mistaken for function calls followed by blocks: this could lead
to unexpected inlining of the block and extra line-break before the
opening brace.

They are now formatted similarly to @autoreleasepool blocks, as

@synchronized(self) {

Wondering if formatting with this style is appropriate: the clang-format doc points in that direction, but it seems to me both @synchronized and @autoreleasepool are more akin to "control statements".

For consistency (esp. in ObjC++ code), as a user, I would tend to have these blocks indented like control statements while interfaces/implementations blocks would be indented like classes/structs.

So maybe it would be better to introduce a new BraceWrapping style 'AfterObjCSpecialBlock` to control these cases, matching the possibilities that are given for control statements vs classes. What do you think?

Hmm, I definitely agree with that logic. I don't see them acting as declarations in any way, they are definitely like control statements.

Ok, i can change this. Two questions though:

  • Should I do this in this patch, or a separate patch? (won't be a big change in any case, but it can still be seen as 2 separate issues/changes)
  • Should I introduce a new BraceWrapping flag (AfterObjCSpecialBlock), or simply apply AfterControlStatement to these blocks?

Personally, I feel AfterControlStatement applies to these. I'm not an expert on this, though, so I will defer to others on the review.

I created another diff to change the field that is used to control brace wrapping after these blocks:

This patch here should now only relate to the parsing of @synchronized blocks.

Just a question on the test.

Why is the block repeated twice?

200–207 ↗(On Diff #133570)

Same question.

not sure why, I just copied the @autoreleasepool test code.
this may be to detect some more 'internal' error, which would lead to any visible effect on the first statement itself...
