    Need help running extension based on event

    hessemanj2100 Community Member

      Hello fellow developers!

       

      I'm developing an auto-close extension for opening braces and quotes. The problem I am having is trying to activate the extension code when the user types the character recognized as an auto-closed character. What do I need to do to activate my extension when the user presses a specific key on their keyboard?

       

      For those who don't know what auto-close is. Here is an example.

       

      Example: When the user types the opening brace {, the extension code will activate and insert the closing brace }, and then finally it will position the cursor between { and }

       

      Thanks for any assistance with this problem. I'm tired of having to manually close a code block!

       

      Sincerely yours,
