How to change the color of the beginning or ending designation of the brackets is invisible in the selected line?
I recommend the color of the selected rectangle: #FFFF00
Thanks for help

You can go to the Syntax Coloring page for the file type in the Window > Preferences page and change the color for brackets.
Hope this helps. Let us know if you have any further questions.

Thanks for your answers
But my query was not about the color of brackets, but their borders (gray square) on the opening bracket when the cursor is at the closing bracket, like on the attachment printscreenMay 16, 2019 at 8:04 am #614375
Apologies for the overlook.
Can you please clarify in which editor you are seeing this problem?
I checked with Java/JSP and JS files and see clearer/light color marker at my end.
Please also share with us the Eclipse/MyEclipse version details, your OS and version details and the styling shortcut code from Window > Preferences > DevStyle > Color Themes page to help us investigate further.

RP, For what I read you are refering to the border of the bracket in the Selected Line, but in such case there’s no border at all. It usually only highlights with a border the partner of the selected bracket. You can see for yourself if you had opening and closing brackets in the same line.
See for example this gif.

I am referring to the beginning/end of the selected bracket, exactly like in your animation, you have a clear white border and in my case it is gray as the background selected line :/ how to change the color of this frame?May 16, 2019 at 5:55 pm #614399
RP, You can do it in different preferences pages depending on the editor you work with. For example Go to
Window > Preferences, expand
General > Editor > Structured Text Editorand change the color for
Matching backkets highlight. If that didn’thelp, you can try writting
matching bracketsin the preferences dialog filter and go to the page that might correspond to the type of file you work with.
Let me know if this solves your issue.

It works! You are a genius, but why it works only in .php files not in .jsMay 30, 2019 at 9:11 am #615072
It depends on the editor you are using and if it supports styling correctly. For example, if you use CodeMix you can go to
Windows > Preferences, then expand
CodeMix > Styntax Coloringand edit
Bracket Matching. If you are not using CodeMix I suggest giving it a try, it has great support for web development. See more details here.
