Namespace:  System.ComponentModel.Design
Assembly:  System (in System.dll)

[PermissionSetAttribute(SecurityAction.InheritanceDemand, Name = "FullTrust")]
[PermissionSetAttribute(SecurityAction.LinkDemand, Name = "FullTrust")]
[HostProtectionAttribute(SecurityAction.LinkDemand, SharedState = true)]
public class ComponentRenameEventArgs : EventArgs

The ComponentRenameEventArgs type exposes the following members.

Public methodComponentRenameEventArgsInitializes a new instance of the ComponentRenameEventArgs class.

Public propertyComponentGets the component that is being renamed.
Public propertyNewNameGets the name of the component after the rename event.
Public propertyOldNameGets the name of the component before the rename event.

Public methodEquals(Object)Determines whether the specified Object is equal to the current Object. (Inherited from Object.)
Protected methodFinalizeAllows an object to try to free resources and perform other cleanup operations before it is reclaimed by garbage collection. (Inherited from Object.)
Public methodGetHashCodeServes as a hash function for a particular type. (Inherited from Object.)
Public methodGetTypeGets the Type of the current instance. (Inherited from Object.)
Protected methodMemberwiseCloneCreates a shallow copy of the current Object. (Inherited from Object.)
Public methodToStringReturns a string that represents the current object. (Inherited from Object.)

A ComponentRenameEventArgs provides data about a ComponentRename event.

A ComponentRenameEventArgs object provides the following information:

  • A Component property that references the component being renamed.

  • An OldName property that indicates the old name of the component.

  • A NewName property that indicates the new name of the component.


The HostProtectionAttribute attribute applied to this type or member has the following Resources property value: SharedState. The HostProtectionAttribute does not affect desktop applications (which are typically started by double-clicking an icon, typing a command, or entering a URL in a browser). For more information, see the HostProtectionAttribute class or SQL Server Programming and Host Protection Attributes.

The following example demonstrates creating a ComponentRenameEventArgs.

// This example method creates a ComponentRenameEventArgs using the specified arguments.
// Typically, this type of event args is created by a design mode subsystem.  
public ComponentRenameEventArgs CreateComponentRenameEventArgs(object component, string oldName, string newName)
    ComponentRenameEventArgs args = new ComponentRenameEventArgs(component, oldName, newName);

    // The component that was renamed:          args.Component
    // The previous name of the component:      args.OldName
    // The new name of the component:           args.NewName            

    return args;
