If an item is removed from a unique naming convention collection you can not add an item with the same name on the following call.


Microsoft has confirmed this to be a bug in the Microsoft products listed at the beginning of this article. This has been fixed with Visual Studio Service Pack 1.

For additional information about the Visual Studio 97 Service Pack 1, please see the following article in the Microsoft Knowledge Base:

Normally, a name is associated with a repository object via a naming relationship. The collection for such a relationship provides the scope for the name and can require that all names in the collection be unique. This is the preferred method for naming objects when a given object will be the destination of only one naming relationship.

Steps to Reproduce Problem

  1. Open a repository-based project that uses unique naming.
  2. Remove item "X" from the collection.
  3. Add an item "X" to the same collection.

Expected results:

  • Success.

Actual results:

  • Fails, item already exists.
