Alters the alias name for the object class.


Object classes in a Geodatabase can have between one and three names. The name of the object class, which is the same as the name of the table in the DBMS in which the objects in the object class are stored, the alias name which the user can set for display purposes in end user applications. The third name is the model name which is a tool for developers of custom objects to use to guarantee the names of objects independent of the true name or alias name.

The AlterAliasName method sets the alias name for the object class. The alias name can be returned using the IObjectClass interface.
