    Prefixing MS varibles

    MS recomend that I use a prefix for my variables like so

    CString m_csMyString;
    double m_dValue;
    CObjectArray oaMyArray;

    and so on. Does anyone know if there is a list over all prefixes somewhere? What is CRect and CPoint recomended to be? I would guess

    CRect crClientRect;
    CPoint cpCursor;

    hungarian notation

    Use the MFC functions for instance type in the function and study the declarations of their functions... also as in the previous message most MFC books explain this naming style .....
