RAD Studio VCL Reference
TComponent.ValidateRename Method

Ensures that renaming an owned component does not create name conflict.

procedure ValidateRename(AComponent: TComponent; const CurName: string; const NewName: string); virtual;
virtual __fastcall ValidateRename(TComponent * AComponent, const AnsiString CurName, const AnsiString NewName);

ValidateRename checks to see if a component can rename one of its owned components, passed in AComponent, from its current name (CurName) to the string passed in NewName. If AComponent is nil (Delphi) or NULL (C++) or NewName is already the name of a component in the Components list, ValidateRename raises an EComponentError exception. 

ValidateRename is used internally when the Name property is modified. It is not necessary to call it directly.
