Our goal is to make JustCode’s typing assistance save keystrokes, without getting in your way. As such, typing assistance received quite a few changes for SP1.  It now works faster, and better than ever :)     

Bracket Completion

When you add an  open bracket at the beginning of a line, JustCode will now add the closing bracket for you at the end of the line, even if there is code. When you hit enter, the auto formatter will run.



Prevents Bracket Doubling

The SP1 release now does it’s best to prevent you from doubling parenthesis, braces, and brackets. Instead of doubling up these items up, it will move your cursor outside the closing item.


Auto Format on Semi-Colon, and Close Bracket

JustCode now automatically runs the auto formatter when you press semi-colon, or add a closing bracket at the end of a line.



Auto Completion of Singe & Double Quotes

The typing assistant now adds a closing single, or double quote for you!


Also, typing assistance now works for C#, JS, AND VB! 

This is just a brief overview of the new great features in JustCode’s typing assistance.  We plan to continue improving this area, so if you find something we could do better please submit your request to PITS. There are many more features in this service pack, and I highly recommend you check it out if you have not done so. :)
