A fast way to rename C# components (when you need to rename like 400 of them)

Last Modified: 2013-12-17
Hi guys
I have 96 richtextbox components named from 1 to 96 like (richtextbox1 – richtextbox96)
I want to rename them like P2A1 to P2H8
Do you know any easy way to do that?
(if I were using Delphi it was very easy I could copy the component paste into Excel as text and multiply it very fast but I don’t know how to do that in C#)
