VS.Net 2003 bracket matching

Recommended Posts

Mine does it automatically. When I go and put the closing } or ) it makes bold the corrosponding { or (. I don't know where this would be turned on but took me a while to notice it was happening. Give it a try. If not it's in the options someplace that's for sure.

Hmmm... that's how mine acts by default.

Are you programming in C/C++?

Hit the "-" or "+" to close/open the brackets... that should show you how the code is divided into blocks.

c#..

when I put a close bracket in , it shows me the corrosponding open bracket, but what I'd like to be able to do if possible is just to click on a close or open bracket and have it show me which other bracket matches it, I've seen this done in other IDE's.

It would just be useful when reading somebody elses code where there is allot of indentation etc.

Mine shows the match automatically as you type, as the others have said. You can also type CTRL-] to jump between brackets. Fancy usage of #if blocks may break the matching.


ah yes , Ctrl } does the trick , thanks :)
