Re: [QF-Test] Name attribute is empty

Hi Sridhar,

just try to be more creative with the names you assign ;-).

Seriously, button1, button2 etc. are the default names that those
buttons would get by default anyway. QF-Test filters such trivial
names because they are not reliable - they depend on component
creation order - and thus cause more harm than good.

Best regards,
    Greg
