Delphi has always used the "sMyString: String" right-side syntax. But it's an interesting point you bring up.
I feel that it's also more readable because we usually read from left to right, therefore, I get to see the variable name first instead of a data type, which is way more helpful IMHO.
We're a place where coders share, stay up-to-date and grow their careers.
We strive for transparency and don't collect excess data.
