Wiki: How to Insert a Formatted Code Snippet and Code Block on TechNet Wiki

Inserting human-readable code into your TN Wiki articles adds a lot of value for the reader, but it can be a challenge for the author. Use this article to share how-to information.

How to Use the Format Code Block Tool

The TechNet Wiki Editor has a Format Code Block option ( ). Click it, insert some code, select a language, click Preview to see it, tweak the code, and then click OK. The source code is now formatted and into your article!

To add line numbers on the left side of your code, click the checkbox in the middle, Display Line Numbers.

Clicking the Format Code Block button opens the following popup window. But there is no option to select the Small Basic programming language. See Small Basic: How to Format a Code Block.

  • Fantastic article!!

  • Good Article.

  • This article was a pain to find, so I'm putting more of the searched terms in the title like "Code Block" and "Code Snippet".

  • Ed, just a suggestion..

    Please implement format code block for F#. I believe it's needed and it's also part of Microsoft supported programming languages of Visual Studio since Visual Studio 2010.

  • Nice ..useful !!

  • hey guys, very nice feature in technet wiki pages. HOWEVER, after 5-6 repeated submissions using IE 10, had to give up download Firefox and submit text blocks this way. Otherwise, the formatting did not want to work for the code blocks... :(
