Hi all,

I followed this thread and I'll not tell you which abbreviations I  
use ;-)
But some of you might find useful to know them since there is no  
summary in the docs:

abbreviated: abbrev
background: bkgnd, bg - backgrounds: bkgnds, bgs
backgroundColor: backColor (and also backPattern, backPixel)
bottomLeft: botLeft (and also bottomRight: botRight)
button: btn - buttons: btns
card: cd - cards: cds
character: char - characters: chars
commandKey: cmdKey
field: fld - fields: flds
graphic: grc - graphics: grcs
group: grp - groups: grps
image: img - images: imgs
itemDelimiter: itemDel
location: loc
message box: msg
previous: prev
rectangle: rect
scrollbar: sb - scrollbars: sbs
seconds: secs (and milliseconds: millisecs)
thumbPosition: thumbPos

Of course, this list is not exhaustive.

Best Regards from Paris,
Eric Chatonet
