Sys.UI.Behavior name Property

Gets or sets the name of the Sys.UI.Behavior object.


To get or set property values for client API properties, you must call property accessor methods that are named with the get_ and set_ prefixes. For example, to get or set a value for a property such as cancel, you call the get_cancel or set_cancel methods.


var b = new Behavior();
var i = b.get_name();




A string value to use as the name.

Return Value

The name of the Behavior object.


Exception Type Condition

argument Function

(Debug) value starts or ends with a space or is an empty string ("").

invalidOperation Function

(Debug) The specified name already exists in the current Sys.UI.DomElement object.

- or -

The current Sys.UI.DomElement object has already been initialized.


If you do not explicitly set the name property, getting the property value sets it to its default value, which is equal to the type of the Behavior object. The name property remains null until it is accessed.
