The string to create an escaped identifier for.

Return Value

The escaped identifier for the value.

CreateEscapedIdentifier tests whether the identifier conflicts with reserved or language keywords, and returns an equivalent name with language-specific escape code formatting. This is referred to an escaped identifier. The escaped identifier contains the same value but has escape code formatting added to differentiate the identifier from the keyword. Two implementation examples are preceding the value with "@" or bracketing the value with "[" and "]".


The default implementation of this method does nothing.
