Function and Event parameters should comply with a naming convention
This PowerBuilder code rule states that function and event parameters must follow a specific naming convention. This convention helps to ensure that the code is consistent and easier to read. The naming convention should include a prefix for each type of parameter, such as “in_” for input parameters, “out_” for output parameters, and “inout_” for parameters that are both input and output. This makes it easier to identify the purpose of each parameter when reading the code.
- Organization: Function and event parameters with a naming convention provides organization and consistency.
- Readability: With a naming convention rule in place, code is easier to read and understand.
- Maintainability: A naming convention rule helps ensure that code is maintainable and can be easily modified.
- Debugging: A naming convention rule makes debugging easier by providing a consistent structure for code.
