Capitalization

Close attention should be paid to capitalization within dialogs and windows. Headline capitalization should be applied to all titles, menus, tooltips, tabs and push buttons. Sentence style capitalization should be applied to all check boxes, radio buttons and group labels.

Design Rationale

Consistent capitalization of text within a plug-in gives a polished look and feel. Additionally it provides a greater perception of quality.

Example

“Run to Line” can be used as a menu item label. “Choose an option for the Java file” can be used as a group label.
