use the IDE "copy for forum" ability and paste it here.


type three ticks, type or paste your code then type three more ticks.

The last one is very nice on the desktop but a PITA on an iPad while designers have made getting certain characters into a bit of a challenging, er, game.

Oh, that </> makes the ticks, never mind… nice!


There is an automatic function for doing this in the Arduino-IDE
just three steps

  1. press Ctrl-T for autoformatting your code
  2. do a rightclick with the mouse and choose "copy for forum"
  3. paste clipboard into write-window of a posting

As an alternative to backticks (`), you can also use tildes (~):

type or paste code here

I'm not familiar with iPad keyboards, so I don't know if that's any easier to type.

Let's see

Hmmm tildes, need to shift for each one
Oh - ticks are right there (different iPad)


haha, argh!

I can't find the tick on a small iPad. On a big iPad it's right there just like a "real" keyboard. And Apple seems to know of some characters that you're not going to want two (or three) of them in a row and reverts the shift status after just one, These are new tricks and I feel like an, well, you get the point.

So this </> thing is what and all I will use.



I just use
in square brackets [ and ] like we used to do.
