Code snippets are strings or small blocks of reusable code that can be copied and inserted in a code file.
There are three different variants of code snippets to help cater to varied line length use cases—inline, single line, and multi-line.
|Inline||A block of text used inline with sentences or paragraphs.|
|Single line||A single line of code.|
|Multi-line||Multiple lines of code with the ability to show more or less strings.|
When to use
- Use a code snippet to help the user copy strings of text easily, or if you want to call out key words for the user.
- Code snippets are typically used in code documentation to help the user get started quickly.
When not to use
- Do not use a code snippet if you want the user to change the input value. Our code snippets are read only.
