3.4.2 Naming components

This section describes how to change the name of a component, for example the processor.


Component names cannot have spaces in them, and must be valid C identifiers.


  1. Select the component and click the Properties button on the toolbar to display the Component Instance Properties dialog.

    You can also display the dialog by either:

    • Right-clicking on the component and select Object Properties from the context menu.
    • Selecting the component and then selecting Object Properties from the Object menu.
  2. Click the General tab on the Component Instance Properties dialog.
  3. Enter Arm in the Instance name field.
  4. Click OK to accept the change. The instance name of the component, that is the name displayed in the processor component title, is now Arm.
