    How do you ensure that a field in a featureclass contains a unique value?

      I was wondering how other developers handle this situation.  I have a featureclass (or business table) with a field that we want to ensure is unique when it is manually populated in an edit session.

      For example, a featureclass has a field called ipaddress.  We want to ensure it is unique when the editor enters this information.  (This field can also remain null if the ipaddress is not known).

      Do others handle this via a Arcfm validation rule or some other way?
