    Hi Patrick
    As has been noted, this feature already exists in Visual Studio 2013 – just check Automatic Brace Completion in Tools\Options\All Languages.

    I’m resolving this item as Completed; let us know how you like the feature.

    Thanks

        Great idea. This is one of the features i miss most in VS.
        Other editors include this feature natively and do not need to rely on extensions or similar.

        I really like this idea, the auto brace close plugin for visual studio is not such good. We want is so hard ..

        There is already some support for this kind of thing in XML and HTML files, however it generally anoy's me. It ends up requiring pressing navigation keys like the right arrow or end key and seems to interupt the flow of my typing.

        If this is implemented, please allow it to be turned off.

        This is great for some people, but it isn't for everyone. This should be an option that you can toggle on or off. The ReSharper plug-in does a great job giving options for stuff like this.

        I really like this idea. Basic IDE's like Eclipse and Netbeans support it also.
