Mismatching (Curly) Brackets RRS feed

  • Question

  • Hi!

    I just started at programming (C#) at uni and have my first exam next friday. But just now, my project started to mismatch all my curly brackets and I can't seem to fix it.

    To define my problem a bit more: When I place the combination of a opening and closing bracket (i.e. "{}") after a class for example, and continue to create a method (adding a new pair of curly brackets again) the opening bracket of the class matches with the closing bracket of the method. Which results in a "wrong" code. 

    I'm kinda desperate and was hoping you guys could help me out in fixing this.

    Thanks in advance!

  • Difficult to know exactly what is wrong without seeing your code (and the exact error message you are getting). But generally your file should look something like this:

    using System;
    // any other assemblies used would go here
    namespace MyNamespace
        public class MyClass
            public void MethodOne()
            public int MethodTwo(int anArgument)
                return anArgument * 2;

    Obviously this is a meaningless class - it's just a demonstration of the basic syntax. Its a simple class called MyClass that contains two methods. MethodOne does not take any arguments or return anything. MethodsTwo takes a single integer argument and returns double the number passed in.

    If you still can't see what is wrong with your code then paste it up here using the 'Insert code block' button

  • Thanks for the quick response!
    I still can't see what I did wrong. Below you can find (a part of) my code; the 1's show which braces match with each other and are not actually in the code.

    using System.Windows.Forms;
    using System.Drawing;
    using System.IO;
    class KopieForm : Form
        public KopieForm
            this.Text = "KopieDemo";
            this.BackColor = Color.White;
            this.Size = new Size(680, 340);
            this.Paint += this.KopieDemo;
    Edit: Found it; forgot the () after the method KopieForm. I'm sorry for my newby-like question ;)
