Stupid bloody IDEs

So, I'm using a nice modern IDE (Visual Studio in this case).  It's lovely in lots of ways - but there's one thing it does that really annoys me:
If I add a new label/textbox/combobox/whatever to the screen I never, _ever_ want to call it by the assigned name.  Why on earth would I want a textbox called textBox1? 

This being the case, why on earth doesn't it pop up a dialog when I drop on a control to ask me what the right name for the control is?

Not asking me the question is encouraging sloppy coding practices.
