Enterprise Object (EO) Naming Conventions for Controls

Post Author: rnagahori

CA Forum: Nsite

When naming controls you should follow standard naming conventions. Good names

describe the control, such as prodName, effectiveDate, and dateRequired. Avoid

special characters like "-" ," /", "<" , or ">" when naming your controls.

    Also please try to avoid using the same name for both the Form Control and also the Table Control (The input control for the column in the table).
