Spaces in property names

Postby amein » December 19th, 2014, 5:19 pm


I created some code which has populated a table with a lot of objects which have spaces in the names of the properties. I realise this was a naive thing to do and now I'm having difficulty creating an index using these properties. Is there a notation I can use which makes this possible?

If you don't have too many different table, maybe the best option is to write a custom code only for updating your table, changing your Key's name ?

From my point of view, i would create a server side code, this way data will only loaded remotely in all cases, and this code would load all the data i need, then updating the key and saving.

But maybe there is a special notation in indexes for telling that you are using space ? Only YGN Team can know !

The simplest way would just be Pascal (camelCase) having them always be one word. Probably separating words with dashes would work too.
