I'm not certain what you are asking, could you please clarify.  Are you talking about finding component names for components that are created at runtime?  If so, what type of components and what is creating them?

Thanks,

Hello

  you can choose any name as component, but sure you can't use one of the existing component, try to put a prefix for your components, like TGHButton, or whatever
