Auto Format

In the Arduino IDE there is a feature under the tool tab called "Auto Format" that lines your code up retaliative to the left margin and makes it nice and easy to read with just one click. Is there a feature like this in Java, and where is it?

It all depends on the IDE you are using. For example, you can always write java code in notepad, although notepad cannot do formatting (and if it could, it probably wouldn't know how to format Java code properly). If you are using Eclipse though (which is one of the more popular IDE's for Java) If I can remember properly it is CTRL-Shift-F for Windows
