Have you ever scroll, scroll, scroll to find the beginning of if else statement? In this post I’m not going to tell you that long methods and classes are evil. Instead, I want to share with you how to move fast between open and close braces.
Put your cursor before or after the brace (your choice) and then press Ctrl+]. It works with either curly or round braces. From now on you don’t need to play Where’s Waldo? to find that brace.
I’ve been using this trick since Visual C++ 4.0.
