Hi friends,
someone also experienced that with engine 5.0.0
newly created objects do not have a name!?

this still applies to the new 5.02 engine, published today.

Is there any front- or backscript in the MC IDE, where we could
"correct" this behaviour somehow? I forgot about this…

BTW: I checked under MC 4, and it seems that the only object that ever got a name was a 
button ("New Button"); all the other objects started without names.

just checked and ALL newly created objects do NOT have a name!
Fields, Images, buttons, Scrollbars, Player et...

Does this sound right to you?

See above.

If so, I'll fix the IDE to put the name back in for buttons only (as an option, so those 
who like it the "new" way can leave it that way).

Where can I check this (and fix it for me)?
I mean where can I "hook" in the MC IDE?

This appears to be an engine bug, introduced some time in the 4.x series.

A change of this scope cannot be assumed to be a feature, probably rightly considered a bug, and should be addressed in the engine.

Has this been filed as a bug report?
