Alters the alias name for a field in the object class.


Fields in object classes in a Geodatabase can have between one and three names. The name of the field, which is the same as the name of the field in 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 fields independent of the true name or alias name.

The AlterFieldAliasName method sets the alias name for a field in the object class. The alias name can be returned using the IField interface.
