This question came from our site for professional and enthusiast programmers.

Start by creating the closing brace every time you make an opening brace. There's no real reason to wait till you're done writing the inner part of the code block to create the closing one. Some editors even do that for you. – Kevin B Nov 20 '12 at 20:55
Write good code to begin with. Stop the the indentation craze. Create functions when they're needed. – Candide Nov 20 '12 at 20:55

You can use Visual Assist which has Highlight Matching {} and ()
