Error icon Indicates the new component name is invalid and, when hovered over with the mouse, displays a tooltip explaining the error.  
Error text Describes the error for the new component name at the topmost position in the new component names list.
Replace in component names Enables you to search all of the text in the new component text boxes for any text you type into the Find box and replace it with any text you type into the Replace With box. As you type text into the Find box, any search results will be highlighted in the text in the new components name box.

The text you type into the Find and Replace With boxes is case sensitive.
