Automatic matching bracket from completion list

SyntaxEditor Python Language Add-on for WPF Forum

Hi. We have the Python Add On and when using PythonSyntaxLanguage, I noticed that when typing an opening bracket, it automatically adds the matching closing bracket. I added a custom completion list that has the opening bracket option "[" but when that gets selected/added, it doesn't add the closing bracket automatically. Is there a way for it to recognize it as a typed text instead so it adds the closing bracket automatically too? Thanks.

Hi. I figured it out using

CompletionItem(string text, IImageSourceProvider imageSourceProvider, IContentProvider descriptionProvider, string autoCompletePreText, string autoCompletePostText);

Hi Jane,

Delimiter auto-complete won't really work in that scenario.  But what you can do instead (as you discovered) is to update the post-text of that particular completion item to have "]" so that the "]" is inserted after the caret, which is effectively what you're after.
