My naming convention

For what it is worth;

I always start a field's name with a lowercase 'f' - the rest in uppercase:

e.g. "fSTUFF"

so, similarly with other objects:

"gSTUFF" will be a group,

"ggSTUFF" will be a group containing subordinate groups,

"iSTUFF" is an image,

"pSTUFF" is (oddly enough) a graphic object

"bSTUFF" is a button


"vSTUFF" is a variable

"cSTUFF" is a constant

"sSTUFF" is a string

"aSTUFF" is an array


needless-to-say; I almost NEVER adhere to this convention . . .  :)


RunRev, having no intrinsic naming conventions, cheerfully allows one to
wander off rather tangentially if one is not very careful.


What I DO do is have a piece of paper on a clipboard on my lap where I write
down every object's name and what it is with a pencil.
