How do I mark code blocks?

I'm new user here and my English is poor. So when I was putting one question here, a person told me that I needed to use some codes to show better my doubts. How should I write the code here for it to appear this way? enter image description here

Unfortunately I am writing and putting this way: bla-bla-bla

\documentclass[notes=show,12pt]{beamer} \usepackage{beamerthemeshadow} etc, ....

because I did't understand yet the help and the correct way. Thanks

    Welcome to TeX.SX. If you indent your code with four spaces, it will appear as code in your question. – user10274 Feb 3 '13 at 14:36

    This is really off-topic since it does not ask a question about TeX. You can learn some markdown tricks used in this site in tex.stackexchange.com/editing-help – hpesoj626 Feb 3 '13 at 14:41
  • We usually discuss this type of issues on the meta.tex.stackexchange.com . A moderator would probably move this question to there. – percusse Feb 3 '13 at 14:42

  • I really tried to understand the page of help, but I could't yet. A simple figure would be very helpful for me. Thanks a lot for your attention. – Moura Feb 3 '13 at 15:01

    @Moura The simplest way is to add four spaces at the beginning of every line of code. Instead, you could also highlight all code lines and hit Ctrl+K (or click the "code" button, with "{}" on it). This auto-indents the highlighted code by 4 spaces. Does that make it clearer? – doncherry Feb 3 '13 at 15:15
  • I think that I finally managed to understand. Is it necessary to put the commands <pre><code> tex commands .... </code></pre> ? – Moura Feb 3 '13 at 15:22

    @Moura: No, you don't have to insert those tags. Just put four spaces at the start of every code line, or mark the whole code block and press Ctrl+K – Jake Feb 3 '13 at 15:44
  • It's very simple and now I undestood. I'm laughing until now. Thank you doncherry and Jake. Best regards. – Moura Feb 3 '13 at 16:04

I finally understood how I should proceed to put the command's tex in a question. As explained to me by Jake and doncherry, we need to select the command's tex code block and then press Ctrl+K. Another command is too simple: press the button {} above, as explained too by doncherry.
