SA1509

TypeName SA1509OpeningBracesMustNotBePrecededByBlankLine
CheckId SA1509
Category Layout Rules

Cause

An opening brace within a C# element, statement, or expression is preceded 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.

In general, a violation of this rule occurs when an opening brace is preceded by a blank line. For example, the following above would generate two instances of this violation, since there are two places where opening braces are preceded by blank lines.

public bool Enabled

{
    get

    {
        return this.enabled;
    }
}

An exception to this rule occurs when the opening brace is preceded by a closing brace. When this occurs, a blank line will be required by SA1513. The following example shows correct use of blank lines:

public bool Enabled
{
    get
    {
        {
        }

        {
            return this.enabled;
        }
    }
}

How to fix violations

To fix a violation of this rule, remove the blank line preceding the opening brace.
