How To: Use the IFieldEdit::AliasName property
When creating datasets it sometimes appears that the IFieldEdit::AliasName property is being ignored.
The AliasName is only supported by ObjectClasses and FeatureClasses. The AliasName property will not work on a Shapefile or Coverage. No error will be received, the property will just never be set.
Tables must be created as an ObjectClass rather than a simple table that is not registered with the GeoDatabase. This is done by specifying a CLSID as an "esriCore.Object" . This CLISD can be used as an argument with the CreateTable method. Following is an example of this process.
- Create a UID that will designate an ObjectClass.
Dim pUID As New UID
pUID.Value = "esriCore.Object"
- Use this UID with the IFeatureWorkSpace::CreateTable method for the CLSID argument.
