Data Structure, Resource Types, and Resource IDs

Resource Names

You can use a resource name instead of a resource ID to identify a resource of a given type. Like a resource ID, a resource name should be unique within each type. If you assign the same resource name to two resources of the same type, the second assignment of the name overrides the first, thereby making the first resource inaccessible by name. When comparing resource names, the Resource Manager ignores case (but does not ignore diacritical marks).
