Style Guide

The Style Guide will help you avoid the most common design mistakes, and will help you create a menu that starts problem-free in all Windows systems.

Avoid long folder and file names

Problems can arise when menu programs with specific run-time parameters are started with path and file names that include blank spaces.

Avoid blank spaces in folder and file names.

Use these examples in place of "My File.Pdf":

  • "My-File.Pdf"
  • "My_File.Pdf"
  • "MyFile.Pdf"
Replace blank spaces in file and directory names with a dash, underscore or use "camel case" notation style.

The window size should not be greater than 640 x 480 pixels.

Font Style

Do not use any exotic (non-native to Windows) font styles.
