Descriptive name for OPC Toolbox object


The default object creation behavior is to automatically assign a name to all objects. For the opcda object, Name follows the naming scheme 'Host/ServerID'. For the dagroup object, if a name is not specified upon creation, the name returned by the OPC server is used, or a unique name is automatically assigned to the group. Automatically assigned group names follow the naming scheme 'groupN' where N is an integer.

You can change the Name of an object at any time. The Name can be any character vector, and is used for display and identification purposes only.
