    I'm having a super frustrating time with the braces auto-complete at the moment

    This is the line

    dateHeader.Text = dateHeader.CommandArgument; 

    Now what I want to do (or normally do) is position my cursor before "dateheader.CommandArgument" becasue I want to do a DateTime.Parse on it....

    So I type DateTime.Parse, click the openbrace, and it closes it for me right after, like so DateTime.Parse()dateHeader.CommandArgument;

    ...a bit annoying (I think coderush did that too)...but if I try and delete the closing brace to then just fix that code, JustCode deletes the Opening brace as well...almost like it's saying "Oh, well you didn't want my brace, well dont get ANY braces"

    Hi Steve,

     Thanks for reporting this issue. In general the right behavior of JustCode's typing assistance should not be like that. The only way that I could reproduce what you report is to select the right parenthesis and hit backspace. If you hit the Delete key right after you enter the opening parenthesis you will be able to remove only the closing parenthesis. If you move the caret to the right with the right arrow key and hit Backspace you will also remove only the closing parenthesis.
     I admit that there are still cases where JustCode places unnecessary closing characters and we will surely work on improving this in future releases. The bug you discovered will also be fixed in the next release.
     In order to compensate you for the inconvenience and efforts I've ranted you some Telerik points. If you have any other questions or suggestions please don't hesitate to contact us again.

    All the best,
    the Telerik team
