Parameters are names for arguments of methods.


Argument identifiers begin with a special lowercase letter as a prefix and put in initial caps later, for example, nItemCount.

Use the following prefixes:

  • 'x' for interfaces
  • 'b' for boolean values
  • 'n' for integer numbers
  • 'f' for floating point numbers
  • 'a' for all other types. These are represented as classes in programming languages.


The order of parameters is defined by the following rule: Where, What, How. Within these groups, order by importance. For example, insertContent(USHORT nPos, XContent xContent,and boolean bAllowMultiInsert.
