# Parenthesis while using subfig and autoref

I would like to use subfig while using the autoref package. I have added the line

\usepackage[listofformat=subparens,subrefformat=parens,labelformat=parens]{subfig}

You could use \renewcommand\thesubfigure{(\alph{subfigure})}, as shown below.

\documentclass{article}

% subfig setup
\usepackage[labelformat=simple]{subfig}
\renewcommand\thesubfigure{(\alph{subfigure})}
\newcommand{\subfigureautorefname}{\figureautorefname}

\usepackage{hyperref}

\begin{document}

\begin{figure}
\subfloat[]{
\centering
\rule{30pt}{20pt}
\label{fig:firstpic}
}
\hfill
\subfloat[]{
\centering
\rule{30pt}{20pt}
\label{fig:secondpic}
}
\caption{}
\end{figure}

\autoref{fig:firstpic} and \autoref{fig:secondpic}

\end{document}


Note that \autoref is from the \hyperref package.
