Is Automatic Brace Completion working correctly in JavaScript RRS feed

  • Question

  • Hi,

    I am a CMU graduate. Recently, I want to use VS to write my javascript program.

    One thing really confuses me: is the Automatic Brace Completion really working?

    It seems so according to the following youtube link:


                    at 02:10, and


                    at 17:50

    but I definitely check the box in Option->TextEditor->JavaScript->Automatic Brace Completion

    I installed node js tool: NTVS.1.2.RC.VS.2015

    Using VS 2015 Community under windows 10

    Test this feature by creating an Express application and a blank javascript visual

    And I have reinstalled the VS already... and this feature in C++ and C# are working

    is there any trick I missed ?

    I really really really need this feature. This is the only flaw so far to develop a javascript program in VS

    Please help

  • Hi Jackal Sin,

    >> "One thing really confuses me: is the Automatic Brace Completion really working?"

    According to your description, it seems that Automatic Brace Completion setting doesn’t work on your side, I create a simple demo with VS 2015 Community under windows 10, it works fine on my side.

    I would suggest that you could reset JavaScript settings and check if it works for you. tools -> Import and Export Settings -> Next -> Next -> choose JavaScript -> Finish.

    If the issue is still existing. Please Starts Visual Studio in safe mode and check if it works.
