I know this is a stupid question, but I am encountering some problems with my thesis. I would like to post a question about an error in a tabular format. How do I write down the codes so that someone can see them in the grey-box like this one? Thank you.

    If you indent each line of code with four spaces, it will look like that. See also the formatting guide for details and more style tips. May 16, 2016 at 22:20

    The simplest is to type your code, highlight it with the mouse/trackpad and click the pair of braces in the icon bar above the edit window.
