Ive been reading online that the C major scale consists of certain chords like C dm and so forth. I cant remember what they are at the moment but that was the basic idea. Is there a certain pattern to chords being within keys? For example, what are the chords related to the B major scale? I might have phrased it awfully but if you have a clue as to what I'm saying please give it a shot. It would be loads of help!

The C major scale is harmonized to produce the chords that belong to the key of C major.

C D E F G A B = C major scale.

C D E F G A B
E F G A B C D
G A B C D E F = harmonized C major scale (in thirds is how we do it)

CEG = C
DFA = Dm
EGB = Em
FAC = F
GBD = G
ACE = Am
BDF = Bdim

So B major is B C# D# E F# G# A# B.

This produces B, C#m, D#m, E, F#, G#m and A#dim.

All you need to remeber is the I, IV, and V chords are major the rest are minor except the seventh one

Ok so let me get this straight. Since the C major scale doesn't have any sharps or flats we have to harmonize it to get the chords that belong within it? But since the B major scale already has sharps and flats we can already tell what chords belong in it?

What I'm noticing though is that the chords are going through a certain pattern. For example it looks to me like the B major scale and the C major scale are still going through this pattern. I don't know if that's what I should call it but here is the "pattern" I see: It begins with a normal note and then two minor chords then two unaltered chords then a minor chord and finally a diminished. Is that a pattern that all major scales have in common when they're put into chords?

If that didn't make sense I'll try to rephrase it.

^yes, for triads in the major scale:

I: major
II: minor
III: minor
IV: major
V: major
VI: minor
VII: diminished

none of it has to do with whether there are sharp or flat notes

The convention we use for Roman Numerals is to only capitalise them for major chords.

I, ii, iii, IV, V, vi and vii would be used for a major key (vii° if you can be bothered to get the symbol).
