This fixes an oversight in the new UT_AlignWithSpaces option (see D75034), which did not correctly identify the alignment of binary/ternary expressions.

curdeius added inline comments.

You could factor out the part of the condition that doesn't concern AlignOperands to get rid of the repetition wrt. the previous if.

Resolved repetitive conditions in the two consecutive ifs and added a small comment.

Thanks! I don't have push permissions to the repository so I cannot submit the commit myself (Maximilian Fickert <>).

Could this also be causing ?

I'll try to see if changes something in that case...

Actually, I can confirm this is unrelated.


bad indent here : should be space-indented.

Yes I think it's unrelated, though this patch should fix the alignment in that example when using the UT_AlignWithSpaces option.

Can you clarify? This is formatted with the LLVM clang-format.

Phabricator shows some kind of >> symbol at the beginning of this line, which i interpreted as a TAB character, hence my comment.
But indeed no issue after looking at the raw file, sorry about this.

I am not 100% that it is thanks to this patch but reformatting Firefox code with clang-format 11 significantly improves the readability of the usage
of ternary operators. See:

Thanks for the change!
