    Well, it could be an stupid question, but i didn't found the way of know the name of an object by code.

    My case: I'm sharing one event between 4 edittexts with the casting tecnic.
    Sub edHour_FocusChanged (HasFocus As Boolean)
    If HasFocus Then
    Dim ed As EditText
    Dim sTag As String
            ed = 
            sTag = ed.Tag
            ShowHourDialog(ed, sTag)
    End If
    End Sub
    As you can see, I'm using the tag to know who rise the event.

    No problem, but for me should be easer to know Sender name, becuase if you forget to set tag by code or in design those edits soudn't work properly. For me it's a way to reduce errors in the future if i use this tecnic again.

    Thanks and sorry for my english.

    Objects don't have names. The designer name property is only used to generate a variable to reference this object.
