Tries to renames the inventory object old to new. Useful for vendors wishing to hand out customized versions of objects.

//function void llSetInventoryName( string old, string new );


A few things that came to mind:

  • What happens with a name collision?
  • When used in a vendor it would be more useful to change the name of the item when giving, this would avoid the name collision problem (and having to change the name back after giving it).
  • A better name for this function would be llRenameInventory (for which there is at least one JIRA).

P.S. I changed the syntax, using inventory numbering to access items is hazardous, names are less prone to change. -- Strife (talk|contribs) 19:03, 21 March 2009 (UTC)

Possibly should use key, not names source. And it should work as copy/rename/give function. In case of collision - either add number to it's name or return error (should be a flag parameter). --Zidan Foxdale 14:00, 20 June 2010 (UTC)

Key support is a no-go. Multiple instances of an asset can exist in a prim's inventory. All those instances will all share the same key. -- Strife (talk|contribs) 23:52, 20 June 2010 (UTC)
