# Formatting rule (IDE0055)

All formatting options have rule ID IDE0055 and title Fix formatting. These formatting options affect how indentation, spaces, and new lines are aligned around .NET programming language constructs. The options fall into the following categories and are documented on separate pages:

• .NET formatting options

Options that apply to both C# and Visual Basic. The EditorConfig names for these options start with the dotnet_ prefix.

• C# formatting options

Options that are specific to the C# language. The EditorConfig names for these options start with the csharp_ prefix.

When you set the severity of code-style rule IDE0055, it applies to all the formatting options. To set the severity of a formatting rule violation, add the following setting to a configuration file.

dotnet_diagnostic.IDE0055.severity = <severity value>


The severity value must be warning or error to be enforced on build. For all possible severity values, see severity level.

## Suppress a warning

If you want to suppress only a single violation, add preprocessor directives to your source file to disable and then re-enable the rule.

#pragma warning disable IDE0055
// The code that's violating the rule is on this line.
#pragma warning restore IDE0055


To disable the rule for a file, folder, or project, set its severity to none in the configuration file.

[*.{cs,vb}]
dotnet_diagnostic.IDE0055.severity = none


To disable all of the code-style rules, set the severity for the category Style to none in the configuration file.

[*.{cs,vb}]
dotnet_analyzer_diagnostic.category-Style.severity = none
