Control Property "Name"

I am building an App screen with large number of text input controls.  During design phase, while I am moving the controls around the screen to see what looks good, I want to be readily able to see which control is which.  I think I want to set the default property for each text input control to something like Self.Name  Is there any such property?

There doesn't seem to be anything listed on https://docs.microsoft.com/en-us/powerapps/maker/canvas-apps/reference-properties

I have tried Self.Name, Self.Title, Self.Label and various other random words but not found one that works.  

Is what I am trying to do possible?  Is there a better way to do it?

Thank you for your help.

No, there is not any way to call the control name dynamically using the Self property or any other method.  You must manually type it.
