You've already Googled your question like a Senior Engineer. Perhaps you've even read my post on how to search effectively using Duckduckgo and tried alternate search engines like Brave Goggles and PHIND.

The following steps are an abridged version of what you will read on Stack Overflow's article on asking good questions.

Steps to Ask a Good Programming Question

  1. Explain what you want to happen and why…
  2. …and what actually happens, and your best guess at why.
  3. ...and any workarounds you're currently using or have considered along with the approaches you've ruled out.
  4. Use code blocks with syntax highlighting and include any error messages you got.
  5. Include a working demo if possible
