Layout Rules

Cause

A closing curly bracket within a C# element, statement, or expression is preceded by a blank line.

Rule Description

To improve the readability of the code, StyleCop requires blank lines in certain situations, and prohibits blank lines in other situations. This results in a consistent visual pattern across the code, which can improve recognition and readability of unfamiliar code.

A violation of this rule occurs when a closing curly bracket is preceded by a blank line. For example:

    public bool Enabled

    {

        get

        {

            return this.enabled;

 

        }

 

    }

The code above would generate two instances of this violation, since there are two places where closing curly brackets are preceded by blank lines.

How to Fix Violations

To fix a violation of this rule, remove the blank line preceding the closing curly bracket.
