    Description

      When positioning the cursor on a closing curly brace of a method

      }

      If the corresponding opening statement is off the screen Netbeans will show the corresponding opening brace with its associated statement even if they are on separate lines

      e.g.

      void myLongMethod()
      {

      Very useful

      However, for "if/while/for" statements (and maybe others) Netbeans only shows the opening brace

      {
      

      This gives no useful information about what the braces are for.

      If the opening statement and brace are on the same line, they are shown in the popup

      if (someCondition) {

      This should work for both styles of code format
