UI Component name validation

UI Component name doesn't validate if there are spaces being used, (an expression is used for name). When spaces are used it doesn't work and throws no errors at all in web console or visual studio output window.

For example if we use an Telerik expression (like we did) as part of the name it will break if said expression returns a value with a space. Which in hindsight makes 100% sense. I think it would be beneficial to any developers in the future if there was a layer of validation that would check to see if a UI component name has a space in it which will break the component functionality. 

In the Telerik-example.png I showed what the fields Im searching by are and you can see grid 1 is loading (which is correct and will work when I continue through the process) However grid 2 simply shows/outputs nothing in the grid at all, and the name of the grid is the black underlined field. Which is breaking due to the space being there.

In cases where the field name includes space you should use square brackets and quotes to specify the field. Similar cases are discussed in the following threads:
