Iím new to Inkscape but I want to know if itís possible to group a shape with a text object like you can do in Adobe Illustrator?

In other words if you draw a square that you want to color programmatically, that square will need a text object grouped to it, e.g. 'My Square' and finally save it as SVG file. Can I do that with Inkscape and if yes how?

What do you mean by "programmatically" ? Can't you just group the shape with the text using the current group features ?
