Specifies whether an object's name is displayed within it.Syntax:

set the showName of {<button> | <graphic> | <group>} to {true | false}


set the showName of button "Oops!" to true

Use the showName property to display a text label for an object(glossary).

If an object's showName property is set to true, its name is displayed inside its rectangle. If the object(glossary) has a label property, the label is displayed instead of the name.
