When you refresh the Webclass Designer view or reopen a project in Visual Basic 6.0, some HTML template items' names may change.

For example, if a hyperlink was named "Hyperlink1" by the Webclass Designer, after you reopen the project, this name may change to "Hyperlink4" (the actual number may vary).


The HTML template item does not have the name property defined. Visual Basic 6.0 Webclass Designer assigns names according to their availability and prior use in a project.


To avoid this problem, make sure that HTML template items have their name property defined. For example, a hyperlink in an HTML template should be defined as:

<a href="" name=link3>Link 3</a>


This behavior is by design.


Steps to Reproduce Behavior

  1. Create a new HTML template and include the following code:

    <a href="">Link 1</a>
    <a href="">Link 2</a>
    <a href="">Link 3</a>
  2. Save the file as Template1.htm.
  3. Add this HTML template to your Webclass project (right-click HTML Template WebItems in the Webclass Designer view and choose Add HTML Template).
  4. In the Webclass Designer view, three WebItems will be shown. Usually they will be named as Hyperlink1, Hyperlink2, and Hyperlink3, though the names may vary.
  5. Close the project, and then reopen it. The names of those three hyperlinks may be changed.
