# Table, Figure, and Listing prefixes

## Background

Using LyX and KOMA Script to author a technical manual.

## Problem

The documents are strewn with the following references:

\ref{fig:Example-Database-Type}

When converted to PDF, this results in "1.1" for the figure number, whereas I would prefer it to read "Figure 1.1". Similarly, for Tables and Listings, they should read "Table 1.1" and "Listing 1.1", respectively.

## Code

The caption code is:

\caption{\label{fig:Example-Query-Statement}Example Query Statement}

The reference code is:

\ref{fig:Example-Query-Statement}

The document preamble includes:

\usepackage{hyperref}

The result is: "The screen shot in 1.1 shows ..."

The desired result is: "The screen shot in Figure 1.1 shows ..."

## Ideas

Tried:

\let\oldref=\ref
\renewcommand{\ref}[1]{Figure {\oldref{#1}}}

Tried:

\usepackage{fancyref}
\renewcommand{\ref}[1]{\fref{#1}}

Tried:

\usepackage{hyperref}

## Question

How do you change the \ref command to include a \figurename prefix without having to edit (and thus duplicate) the code for every figure (that already has the \ref)?

Thank you!
