    Naming Convention for Object Maps

    Hi,

    Is there a suggested naming convention while recording objects in the object map?

    For eg., if I have a HTMLEditBox object for entering the user name, I name it as "HTMLEditBox_UserName".

    Is this normal practice or should I just name it as "UserName".

    It seems like a personal choice, but I would like to know if there were any good practices around this.

    Thanks
    C

    Re: Naming Convention for Object Maps

    If you are going to object map every object (which I would not recommend) you will have quite a large object map down the road. Since you can sort your object map by name one thought would be to do something like...

    EditBox_UserName
    Button_Submit

    ...This way you could sort and objects of certain types will come together.

    Re: Naming Convention for Object Maps

    Thanks!!

    The way I have with object maps is to first record a script without activating the attach profile.

    I would identify those objects which are not "named" and try to add those objects alone to my object map.

    Is this an OK approach?

    p.s.:Am I hijacking my own thread? ;-)
