NetBeans allows you to define either global or project specific code formatting options. To apply the following rules globaly navigate to Tools > Options > Editor > Formatting and select PHP language. To define project specific rules right click on your project and go to Properties > Formatting and check the `Use project specific options` and of course select PHP language.
Because the default rules of NetBeans 7.3 are really close to Lithium's coding standarts, we don't need to change many options. Let's begin...
- Expand Tabs to Spaces: Uncheck
- Number of Spaces per Indent: 4
- Tab Size: 4
- Right Margin: 120
- Line Wrap: Off
- Continuation Indentation: 0
- Array Declaration Indentation: 4
- After Function: 0
- After Open PHP Tag: 0
- Before Close PHP Tag: 1
