I want to have my IF statement blocks braces on the same line as the IF statement... where is the setting to do this?

Fir example:

if(DateTime.Today() is "monday")  {  //  <----------    this is where I want the brace, not on the next line
    doSomething();
    doSomethingElse();
)

Which version of VS? In VS2010, you would find it at:

Tools > Options >Text Editor > C# > Formatting > New Lines

From there,uncheck the "Place open brace on new line for control blocks" option. See this screen shot:

That's what I have and it's not working... I do a Edit -> Advanced -> Format Document, and it doesn't change anything!

A bug maybe?

Not sure what to tell you there, using Format Document works for me...

Found the problem... I was CHECKING the box, not un-checking it.  I just hate it when I do something dumb like that!

Thanks again!
