solved per accepted answer. I would also encourage readers to read @Nathan Tuggy's answer, which has some related details that may help you understand the issue more quickly
I have some Python code I'm trying to format, but only part of the block comes out formatted. I've pasted the problem formatting below; originally from https://stackoverflow.com/a/41812246
Ctrl + K indent the whole block
(Should be the same) but manually 4-space indent the block
Use triple back-tics
Ensure new-lines are between all formatting changes
< !-- language: lang-python -- >
All have the same result, which is that only part of the code block is rendered as code, and other parts are just rendered as text.
xx below this should be **ALL** code xx
@DavidPosthill - I don't see how the subsequent code block is preceded by a list item here.
``` import sys, time, msvcrt
def readInput( caption, default, timeout = 5):
start_time = time.time() sys.stdout.write('%s(%s):'%(caption, default)) sys.stdout.flush() input = '' while True: if msvcrt.kbhit(): byte_arr = msvcrt.getche() if ord(byte_arr) == 13: # enter_key break elif ord(byte_arr) >= 32: #space_char input += "".join(map(chr,byte_arr)) if len(input) == 0 and (time.time() - start_time) > timeout: print("timing out, using default value.") break print('') # needed to move to next line if len(input) > 0: return input else: return default
And some examples of usage
ans = readInput('Please type a name', 'john') print( 'The name is %s' % ans) ans = readInput('Please enter a number', 10 ) print( 'The number is %s' % ans) ```
@DavidPosthill - or how the list-item explanation applies to the code stoping, mid-block, and returning to paragraph formatting
