public class DuplicateMetadataObjectException : MetadataException


This is just like the InvalidMetadataObjectException class, except that it includes a reference to the duplicate object as well as which field is causing the collision. These fields are not guaranteed to be populated; it is a best effort. When they are populated, they will contain the correct information.

Thread Safety

Any public static (Shared in Visual Basic) members of this type are thread safe. Any instance members are not guaranteed to be thread safe.
