Type: MapBasic Function (reserved)


Return Value: String



The function sets a new name for the application (AddIn). This name is used in the Tools Manager in MapInfo Pro.

The name is also used to assign the ribbon resource xml file. The resource file is generated by the Ribbon Desiger and must have the same name. The file name gets the additional [AddIn_Name].resources.xml.



In this example there must be a file MyApp.resources.xml in the same folder like the MBX wich includes this code.
