I was reviewing someone elses code recently and I noticed they had used what I consider excessive line spacing.
Public Sub RunAllThree()
Dim objWorksheet As Worksheet
Dim intResponse As Integer
I will henceforth call this scardeycat spacing and use it as a derogatory term. Leaving aside for a minute the silly name prefixes, what about all that white space?
In brace languages I tend to to open and close on separate lines which breaks things up anyway without need for additional spacing.
I use the odd blank line in my VBA to give eyes a break before or after some intense code, or to give extra emphasis to something.
But like all formatting, if you overdo it and emphasise everything then you emphasise nothing. The reality is that programming code is relatively information dense, adding white space can make it less scary up to a point, and after that you are just forcing the reader to scroll more than they should need to.
What is your approach to spacing?
