Return Value

A String containing the name of the Component, if any, or null if the Component is unnamed.

A Component may or may not have a name. If a Component is given a name, the name is unique among other Component objects within its IContainer.

The ISite stores the name of the Component. A Component can only have an ISite if it has been added to an IContainer and the IContainer assigns an ISite to it.
