If a field name is no longer suitable, you can change its name by following these steps:

  1. Expand the Project Tree and select the class.
  2. Optionally, view the class contents if they are not already displayed.

    The hidden class contents are displayed.

  3. Select the field you are renaming.
  4. On the Design tab, in the Create group, click Rename Rename icon.

    Alternatively, right-click the field in the Project Tree and select Rename from the shortcut menu.

  5. Type a new name for the field and press Enter.
    Note Field names need to be unique for a class. If you type a name that already exists, a message is displayed.

    The field name is updated in the Project Tree.
