It's straightfoward:
If you are using MFC and your control is COleControl derived somewhere inside of your controls code just use the following:
...
CString strControlName;<br />
GetAmbientProperty(DISPID_AMBIENT_DISPLAYNAME, VT_BSTR, &strControlName);
...
After that strControlName will be filled with the name assigned to your control by the container.
For implementation detailes see GetAmbientProperty implementation in MFC.
