Hot Coding Action

Programmers don't like to type a lot, so they have a habit of abbreviating their programming variables. "String" becomes "Str", "integer" turns into "int" and "Obj" is short for "Object". As you can see, you can abbreviate these words by chopping them down to their first syllable.

Hopefully, it will take you only a moment to realize why "Button" is uncharacteristically abbreviated to "Btn".

This is especially important if you're talking about a Plug-in for these items.
