M9 - When I want to change a component's name - be it part or whole - from Capital case to Lower case a warning pop-up appears "Name already in use". Is this normal behaviour ? I would expect the system to just accept the name change even if it were just modifying a letter from Upper to Lower case or vice versa.
Names are case-insensitive, so yes, this is normal. Try adding an extra letter first, then removing it.
We will probably modify the behavior for MAP files, but with other data sources our hands are kind of tied.
On the other hand... do we want to be able to name components identically except for different capitalisation? I don't think that would be helpful.
(1) It would usually be inadvertent, and be simply confusing, for humans, in the project pane.
(2) SQL is not case sensitive. How would name ambiguity be resolved?
Can of worms. Best not changed at all IMHO.
...But you can probably allow renaming that only changes case, while still preserving uniqueness regardless of case. Silly me.
I think Windows Explorer does this.
Yes, that's what I meant - accept changes in case for an already existing name (for MAP files, mostly).
Just in case when typing inadvertently the name wrong to be able to modify swiftly. I will try adding a letter first and then modify the name. Thank you Adam and Tim.
