CreateDataObjectName return value for duplicate folder name
Wed, 06/15/2022 - 08:08 am
My goal is to create a unique and legal name for a new data folder using CreateDataObjectName, but the result is not as I anticipated from reading the help info.
With the function written as:
CreateDataObjectName(dfr, sNewFolder, 11, 0, 0)
where dfr is "root:" and sNewFolder is "Training_Ref_and_Clean_Glass".
The first execution of CreateDataObjectName with no folder of the given name in root, returns "Training_Ref_and_Clean_Glass". After that folder is created, a second execution returns "Training_Ref_and_Clean_Glass0". After that folder is created, a third and further executions always return "Training_Ref_and_Clean_Glass0". To be clear, each time CreateDataObjectName is executed, sNewFolder is set to "Training_Ref_and_Clean_Glass".
My expectation was that the suffix would increment to suggest a unique name, for example after "Training_Ref_and_Clean_Glass0" was created, the next execution would return, "Training_Ref_and_Clean_Glass1", like "UniqueName".
Did I miss something in the function explanation?
Looks like a bug. I'll look into it.

I have fixed CreateDataObjectName() for the next nightly build. Be sure to get build #39125 or later.
