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.

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 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 Function CreateComponentRenameEventArgs(ByVal component As Object, ByVal oldName As String, ByVal newName As String) As ComponentRenameEventArgs
    Dim args As 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
End Function
