Visual Studio 2013: Matching Braces
This next feature only applies to C++ and C# just so you know. There are four things I want to talk about: highlighting, moving, selecting, and defining matching braces.
If you have any code with matching braces:
You can put your cursor to the left of any brace and it will highlight the matching one:
If you want to move the cursor from one brace to another simply press CTRL+] (close bracket) to jump, forward or backward, between them:
If you press CTRL+SHIFT+] (close bracket) then it will not only jump to the matching brace but will highlight everything between the braces as well:
Lastly, the definition of “brace” is very loose and applies to square brackets, curly braces, and parentheses:
So feel free to use this feature set with just about any type of brace.
