Hi Charlie, To show the matching clue for "()", "[]", and "{}", set the BraceMatchingEnabled property (not visible in the designer) to be true, e.g., public Form1() { InitializeComponent(); ...... editControl1.BraceMatchingEnabled = true; } Please let me know if this helps. Regards, Guru Patwal Syncfusion, Inc.

Very good - that works fine. I''ve noticed that several editor packages in c# show the brackets in rectangles, where as other editors simply change the matching brackets to bold font - I think I prefer the bold font style as it does not obscure the bracket character and cursor. I have yet to gather feedback from my users on this. Many thanks for your help, Charlie
