Name Property Changes in Visual Basic .NET

In Visual Basic 6.0, the Name property of a Timer or Menu control could be changed at design time and read at run time. In Visual Basic .NET, these controls are replaced by the Timer and MainMenu components, which do not have a Name property.

When a Visual Basic 6.0 project is upgraded, the Name property is used as the design time name for the Timer or Menu component; this name is not accessible at run time.
