    Hello Guys,

    Can some body explain what exactly is "Hungarian Notation" in a simple term?

    Thanks for your valuable time,

    Kind Regards,

    Though I'd normally abhor people being told to Google something, this is the #1 result: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Hungarian_notation

    Well bear, I have already googled it and found the same page.

    The reason why I posted it here on WHT is because someone can explain that in a "very simple" way since I have absolutely no idea of what it is.

    Any way thanks for the reply Bear

    Hmm, ok.
    "In Hungarian notation, a variable name starts with a group of lower-case letters which are mnemonics for the type or purpose of that variable, followed by whatever name the programmer has chosen; this last part is sometimes distinguished as the given name. The first character of the given name can be capitalised to separate it from the type indicators (see also CamelCase). Otherwise the case of this character denotes scope."

    Basically, the name starts with something that helps identify what it does, and can end in it's particular name, as in "var Emailxxxmyfunction" (or just emMyFunction, where em stands for email). Camel case means it's mixed caps and lower, with "humps" in the middle.
    Does that help?
