The following example determines whether the specified Constraint exists in the ConstraintCollection before its deletion.

Public Shared Sub RemoveConstraint( _
   constraints As ConstraintCollection, constraint As Constraint)
	If constraints.Contains(constraint.ConstraintName) Then
		If constraints.CanRemove(constraint)
		End If
	End If

Catch e As Exception
	' Process exception and return.
       Console.WriteLine("Exception of type {0} occurred.", _
End Try
End Sub
