change constructor argument prefix

I think I saw it before but just can't find it in treehouse & google. I feel like my search is still not good enough.

so when using auto constructor, Mine:

    public Attempt(String mMessage, AttemptKind mKind) {
        this.mMessage = mMessage;
        this.mKind = mKind;


    public Attempt(String message, AttemptKind kind) {
        mMessage = message;
        mKind = kind;

Please help me find the setting.

Hi Juneau Lim

Open File -> Settings Expand Editor and then expand Code Style. Select Java, then choose the Code Generation tab. In the Naming table, select the Field row and add m as the name prefix for fields

Hope this helps, Thanks,

Thank you so much. You saved my day. I certainly remember I did this before. Have no idea why it was so hard to find.

Many thanks,
