The Weird and The Wonderful

   

The Weird and The Wonderful forum is a place to post Coding Horrors, Worst Practices, and the occasional flash of brilliance.

We all come across code that simply boggles the mind. Lazy kludges, embarrasing mistakes, horrid workarounds and developers just not quite getting it. And then somedays we come across - or write - the truly sublime.

Post your Best, your worst, and your most interesting. But please - no programming questions . This forum is purely for amusement and discussions on code snippets. All actual programming questions will be removed.

GeneralWhen you aren't even sure WHY you're writing bad code [modified] Pinmemberphilip_cole5-Feb-13 23:26 
Our old customer service system has some brilliantly bad code in it, but I just had to share this one I spotted this morning.
I think the guy got halfway through and forgot exactly what he was even meant to be fixing, let alone how to fix it.
 
'ISSUE 2862 ?
If CurrentUser.WorkingSession.Market.TaxInclusiveInCatPrice Then
    'Me.lblTotalOutstanding.Text = String.Format("{0:c}", decOutstanding)
Else
    '?
End If
Me.lblTotalOutstanding.Text = String.Format("{0:c}", decOutstanding)
 
I just wish we still had our old issue tracker to see what the mystical ISSUE 2862 is...
