Nomenclature:

To describe menu and dialogue items unambiguously and hierarchically, we use symbols (and sometimes color & fonts) to identify items in the IDE as follows...

  • [] Tools [] Options.. [] == Menu items in hierarchical order

  • -- Editor --; -- Display --; -- Colors --; == Tree items in hierarchical order

  • [ Tab or Button name ] == A Tab name for tabbed items, or a button name.

  • "Label" or < Label > == Text on a Label

  • [x] check box; == A check box. Ticked = [/], Unticked = [ ].

To denote keypresses, we use (by example):

  • ^,+,F2 == Ctrl,Shift,F2 (can be ^-+-F2 but ^+F2 is ambiguous and to many means Ctrl,F2)

  • ^,%,Del == Ctrl,Alt,Delete. (Can be ^-%-Del but not ^%Del)

  • ^,H == Ctrl+H. (Often abbreviated ^H as it is unambiguous).

To denote code, we use fixed space fonts (by example):

With notes always in black..

  • Statement(a, b) . For Pascal & C, of course this is Statement(a, b) .
