[clang-format] [PR42164] Add Option to Break before While

Authored by MyDeveloperDay on May 4 2020, 6:06 AM.



Its currently not possible to recreate the GNU style using the BreakBeforeBraces: Custom style due to a lack of missing BeforeWhile in the BraceWrappingFlags

The following request was raised to add BeforeWhile in a do..while context like BeforeElse and BeforeCatch to give greater control over the positioning of the while

Why not remove Style.BraceWrapping.IndentBraces?

  • should be a no-op for GNU style,
  • other styles don't IndentBraces,
  • we can add a sentence in the release notes that previously IndentBraces implied the new "BeforeWhile" option, and now you just have to set it if you're using a custom GNU-like style.

IndentBraces is used elsewhere inside parseLabel() and CompoundStatementIndenter, I think I'd be uncomfortable about removing it.

There are 1000's of references to it in GitHub.

I'm sorry, I wasn't clear: why not remove Style.BraceWrapping.IndentBraces || from line 2170, leaving the value of the new option Style.BraceWrapping.BeforeWhile be the only thing that determines whether a newline is added before the while in a do-while block?
