Hi,
I would like to alter the default names given to objects in VB. E.G. txt1 as opposed to Text1. Is it possible and if so how? Thanks,
diek

No you cannot, these are generated from the actual classname of the object and not by the IDE itself. I guess if you really wanted to make life difficult you could write a wrapper object that encapsulated all the properties of the standard objects and had a different classname but this seems to me to be much more effort than it would be worth.

tim,
nice to see you're still coming to my assistance. I just came back from a long out of work break. Not the answer that I wanted but a great explanation. I thought there might have been something in the registry. COuld you take a look at http://www.experts-exchange.com/jsp/qManageQuestion.jsp?ta=visualbasic&qid=20278901?  Thank you and have a great day programming,
Diek
