What's In A Function Name?

2 posts in this topic

#1 ·  Posted (edited)

In the help file index there are many functions that begin with an underscore character, like _ArrayAdd and _DateAdd to name two. Does the underscore have any significance? From what I can see it's almost as if you'd use the underscore to distinguish builtin functions from those in external (include) files?

Your assumption is correct. It does alert you visually that it is a UDF, not a builtin function by using the underscore. It also help in autocomplete within the editor to see your UDFs in order as well as other advantages.
