I don't see the point of naming objects according to a particular
system. When referenced in a script, they are almost always preceded by
the object type. I.e.: btn "mybutton". Seems pretty clear to me. I do,
on the other hand, use a system to label variables according to scope
because there is no other way to identify that.
That said, I do sometimes name group with "grp" at the end of the name,
though I'm not sure why, and labels have "-lbl" at the end because those
are the only fields I've ever needed to identify visually. But I never
need to know whether a field is a field, because the script always has
"field" before the object name.
Maybe I'm missing something. I won't use your specs anyway. :)
