Cicode Programming Reference > Using Cicode Programming Standards > Standards for Constants, Variable Tags, and Labels > Constants


In Cicode there is no equivalent of #defines of C language, or a type that will force variables to be constants (read-only variables). However, the variable naming convention makes constants easily identifiable so developers will treat those variables as read-only variables.

For example:

INT	ciTrendTypePeriodic = 1;
INT ciTrendTypeEvent = 2;
STRING csPageName = "Mimic";
