The Braces page contains options which allow you to configure line breaks around and within the following code blocks:

  • Namespace
  • Type
  • Simple Method
  • Method
  • Property \ Indexer \ Event
  • Interface and Auto-Implemented Property
  • Simple Property \ Indexer \ Event
  • Accessor
  • Simple Accessor
  • Lambda Expression \ Anonymous Method
  • Statement

Each element has separate configuration options. You can set the following wrapping options:

  • How CodeRush should wrap open and close braces:

    • No wrap - does not add extra line breaks. This option removes existing line breaks if the Keep existing line breaks checkbox is not checked in the Editor | C# | Formatting | General options page.
    • Wrap if Long or Multiline - adds line breaks to wrap each expression element if the line exceeds the margin.
    • Simple Wrap - adds line breaks to wrap only those expression elements that exceed the margin.
    • Wrap - wraps all code elements regardless of the right margin.
  • The line break's position before or after a code element.

  • Align by - allows CodeRush to align braces to an element in the first line.

  • Align content by - allows you to specify how to align code blocks.

  • Indent - allows you to specify code lines' indentation.
