ICodeGenerator.CreateValidIdentifier(String) Method

Definition

Creates a valid identifier for the specified value.

public:
 System::String ^ CreateValidIdentifier(System::String ^ value);
public string CreateValidIdentifier (string value);
abstract member CreateValidIdentifier : string -> string
Public Function CreateValidIdentifier (value As String) As String

Parameters

value
String

The string to generate a valid identifier for.

Returns

String

A valid identifier for the specified value.

Remarks

CreateValidIdentifier tests whether the identifier conflicts with reserved or language keywords, and returns a valid identifier name that does not conflict. The returned identifier will contain the same value but, if it conflicts with reserved or language keywords, will have escape code formatting added to differentiate the identifier from the keyword. Typically, if the value needs modification, value is returned preceded by an underscore "_".
