How do I format my code blocks?

I'm new to this forum but I've used and still do use dozens of forums. But on this forum I have been unable to successfully past code and have it accepted. I get the following error....

•Your post appears to contain code that is not properly formatted as code. Please indent all code by 4 spaces using the code toolbar button or the CTRL+K keyboard shortcut. For more editing help, click the [?] toolbar icon.

I try everything but I can never get the code accepted. It is perfectly formatted just as it is in the program. what's the key? Thanks, Gary

Paste your code and select your whole code & above the text box you will find {} brackets if you press that then it will be formatted as code. – Dave Mar 22 '12 at 2:13

Paste your code, then highlight your code, then hit the "{}" button. It should do the trick
