Just added a tutorial to my site on Localising Variables - thought it might be useful for beginners:

If you guys spot any errors, or indeed room for improvement please do let me know  :-)

Regards,

Lee

Very nice Lee. You might want to check your spelling. Couple that stood out to me:

localisation => localization

localising => localizing

localised => localized

behaviour => behavior

everytime => every time

...

Tho this seems to refute the above; hmmm.

Pretty much a UK vs US english thing... Me, I'm some weird blend of both, Canadian spelling  :-D

behaviour, colour, metre, centre (the middle) and center (the building) but tire and not tyre  :lol:

Thanks Alan :-)

They do take a while to conceive & create, and at the same time, I don't want to make each tutorial very long as the reader will probably get bored, so its about trying to get a good balance. Also, there are no doubt quite a few typos along the way...

Thanks for your feedback though - I appreciate your opinion  :-)

Prompting with a Default Option  :-)

Nothing too complicated, but I've seen it being asked a lot. As always, if you guys see anything wrong with it, let me know  :-)

Very well put together and informative.

Although I'd used the static technique before I'd not thought of the dynamic default before - Next time a situation like that comes up I'll have to give it a try.
