Is bracket indent feature available in EditControl? We need any text enclosed within "{" and "}" be automatically indented just like Vs.net.

Hi Susan, EditControl does support indentation when the Enter key is pressed after the opening brace, when it is in Smart AutoIndentMode, but it does not outdent the closing brace. We have an open Feature Request #118 in this regard and will try our very best to take care of it as soon as possible. You could track the progress of this feature at this link below : Feature Request #118 Let me know if you need anything more. We appreciate your interest in Syncfusion products. Regards, Bharath.

Hi Nanda,

I'm using version and it still seems to be doing the smae thing. Is this the right version or is there a newer one? I have run the debug version and see the problem in the UpdateIndentation function in StreamEditControl.cs. It looks like it takes the RenderedLexem as either spaces or a tab depending on how the control is set up. then later in the function it compares the RenderedLexem to a } and there is a mismatch so it doesn't un-indent. I guess this is the case because the { wasn't the last key press.

Maybe I'm just using the wrong version but I'm pretty sure it's the latest one.

Let me know if you need some more information.

Thanks for your patience. I used the code sample under,

\\My Documents\Syncfusion\EssentialStudio\\Windows\Edit.Windows\Samples\2.0\Product Showcase\Custom Code Editor\CS

and was able to see the behaviour as in this video file. The EditControl outdents properly. Can you please try these and let me know if you are seeing any different behaviour.
