Hello,

I want to create a feature Class within a Geodatabase (the code below).
When computing
IFieldsEdit.AddField(IFieldEdit)
it crashes and returns
"Exception from HRESULT: 0x80040705"


It wouold be grateful if somebody could get any help or ideas to solve this problem.
Thanks!


Here are some object-values at runtime:

and this is the code i want to run:

public IFeatureClass CreateFeatureClassInWorkspace(String featureClassName, IFeatureWorkspace featureWorkspace)
        {
            try
            {
                // Instantiate a feature class description to get the required fields.
                IFeatureClassDescription fcDescription = new FeatureClassDescriptionClass();
                IObjectClassDescription ocDescription = (IObjectClassDescription) fcDescription;
                IFields fields = ocDescription.RequiredFields;
                IFieldsEdit fieldsEdit = (IFieldsEdit)fields;

                // Add an object ID field to the fields collection. This is mandatory for feature classes.
                IField oidField = new FieldClass();
                IFieldEdit oidFieldEdit = (IFieldEdit)oidField;
                oidFieldEdit.Name_2 = "OID";
                oidFieldEdit.Type_2 = esriFieldType.esriFieldTypeOID;
                fieldsEdit.AddField(oidFieldEdit);

                // Create a geometry definition (and spatial reference) for the feature class.
                IGeometryDef geometryDef = new GeometryDefClass();
                IGeometryDefEdit geometryDefEdit = (IGeometryDefEdit)geometryDef;
                geometryDefEdit.GeometryType_2 = esriGeometryType.esriGeometryPoint;
                ISpatialReferenceFactory spatialReferenceFactory = new SpatialReferenceEnvironmentClass();
                ISpatialReference spatialReference =
                spatialReferenceFactory.CreateProjectedCoordinateSystem((int)esriSRProjCSType.esriSRProjCS_NAD1983UTM_20N);
                ISpatialReferenceResolution spatialReferenceResolution = (ISpatialReferenceResolution)spatialReference;
                spatialReferenceResolution.ConstructFromHorizon();
                ISpatialReferenceTolerance spatialReferenceTolerance = (ISpatialReferenceTolerance)spatialReference;
                spatialReferenceTolerance.SetDefaultXYTolerance();
                geometryDefEdit.SpatialReference_2 = spatialReference;

                // Add a geometry field to the fields collection. This is where the geometry definition is applied.
                IField geometryField = new FieldClass();
                IFieldEdit geometryFieldEdit = (IFieldEdit)geometryField;
                geometryFieldEdit.Name_2 = "Shape";
                geometryFieldEdit.Type_2 = esriFieldType.esriFieldTypeGeometry;
                geometryFieldEdit.GeometryDef_2 = geometryDef;
                fieldsEdit.AddField(geometryField);

                // Add a Name text field to the required fields.
                IField field = new FieldClass();
                IFieldEdit fieldEdit = (IFieldEdit)field;
                fieldEdit.Name_2 = "Name";
                fieldEdit.Type_2 = esriFieldType.esriFieldTypeString;
                fieldsEdit.AddField(field);

                // Use IFieldChecker to create a validated fields collection.
                IFieldChecker fieldChecker = new FieldCheckerClass();
                IEnumFieldError enumFieldError = null;
                IFields validatedFields = null;
                fieldChecker.ValidateWorkspace = (IWorkspace)featureWorkspace;
                fieldChecker.Validate(fields, out enumFieldError, out validatedFields);

                // The enumFieldError enumerator can be inspected at this point to determine
                // which fields were modified during validation.

                // Create the feature class.
                IFeatureClass featureClass = featureWorkspace.CreateFeatureClass
                  (featureClassName, validatedFields, ocDescription.InstanceCLSID,
                  ocDescription.ClassExtensionCLSID, esriFeatureType.esriFTSimple,
                  fcDescription.ShapeFieldName, "");
                return featureClass;
            }
            catch (Exception e)
            {
                Console.WriteLine(e.StackTrace);
                throw e;
            }


Thanks.
