This method is obsolete. See the Remarks section below.

Description

Use the Utilities.IsValidIdent method to determine whether the string specified by the Ident parameter is a valid JScript, C++Script, C#Script or DelphiScript identifier. A valid identifier may include only alphanumeric characters ('A'..'Z', 'a'..'z' and '0'..'9') and underscores ('_') and cannot start with a digit.

You can use this function, for example, to see if the names of properties and methods you create via the ODT project item are valid.
