Maybe, for instance,

,----[ C-h f indent-region RET ]
| indent-region is an interactive native compiled Lisp function in
| ‘indent.el’.
| It is bound to C-M-\.
| (indent-region START END &optional COLUMN)
| Indent each nonblank line in the region.
| A numeric prefix argument specifies a column: indent each line to that column.
| [...]

which does this once when invoked explicitly, i.e. not on-the-fly.

The other extreme, by the way, is aggresive-indent-mode which on-the-fly
indents not just the line you are one but others around it as things
change.  I use it all the time.
