Layout Rules

Cause

A closing curly bracket within a C# element, statement, or expression is not followed 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 not followed by a blank line. For example:

    public bool Enabled

    {

        get

        {

            return this.enabled;

        }}

The code above would generate one instance of this violation, since there is one place where a closing curly bracket is not followed by a blank line.

How to Fix Violations

To fix a violation of this rule, ensure a blank line follows closing curly brackets.
