Description Ruda 2012-09-30 15:13:35 UTC
There is a webservice that has this structure


In the User class has a WebService method that returns a WebService.Entities.User

Except that when generating the client in monodevelop for MonoTouch, a problem occurs in classes with the same name.

In Visual Studio, when generating the WebService is named UserClient to avoid these conflicts.

Web References/WS.User/Reference.cs(25,25): Error CS0579: The attribute `System.Diagnostics.DebuggerStepThroughAttribute' cannot be applied multiple times (CS0579)
Web References/WS.User/Reference.cs(28,28): Error CS0579: The attribute `System.ComponentModel.DesignerCategoryAttribute' cannot be applied multiple times (CS0579)

Visual Studio generates for the User and User1 WebService object to return.
