Place Opening Braces in a New Line for a JavaScript function – Visual Studio 2010

Developers have different way of indenting JavaScript code in Visual Studio 2010. When it comes to methods, some of them keep the opening braces in the same line of the method declaration like this:

<script type="text/javascript">
function
someFun() {
}
</script>

This is also the default indentation in Visual Studio 2010. If you want to change that and place opening braces in a new line, then Go to Tools > Options > Text Editor > JScript > Formatting > Check the box ‘Place open brace on new line for functions’

Now when you type the same function and hit enter before the last braces, Visual Studio indents the opening braces on a new line as shown below

<script type="text/javascript">
function
someFun()
{
}
</script>

Thanks for the tip. I like my javascript open braces to be consistent with my c# code.
