Naming Convention: Suggested Name Prefixes

Many VB controls have been introduced in this chapter. In Chapter 2, it was recommended that all VB controls be named with three letter prefixes to enhance code clarity. This standard was observed wherever VB control was used and is important in developing a good coding habit. To refresh your memory and for your convenience, the following table shows the controls you have seen so far with the suggested prefixes.
