syntax of variables

7 posts in this topic

I'm not a programmer and a child understands better english then I. But I want to learn both. To easier read your scripts I want to know how to generally name variables.

I think you use ...

...$oXXXX -> for object variables and

...$hXXXX -> for handles variables.

Please would you explain if this is right and how is the naming for other variables?

When i create a script with much variables then i do it this way

$Button_Green ...
$Button_Blue..
$Label_xxx
$Object_shell
$Handle_xxx

and so on.

You can name a variable anything you want. You could name a string $notastring and it really wouldnt matter. There is no set syntax. Some people just like to use things like $a_Array or $s_String so that its easier to read and remember.

There are some variable names you can't use... look at $CmdLine and $CmdLineRaw... those are preset variable names with a purpose.

That's a good link plato offered there, I do try to follow the standard, but find myself sometimes off in left field.

Thanks to all. The link from herewasplato is helpfully.

I thought there is a consensual agreement for a generally naming convention.
