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.

Given you said it was replicated in multiple places, I can see only one possible perceived value -- to block this function from returning until after the dispatcher thread is finished executing something else. Such behavior isn't guaranteed, but it would work just often enough that I can easily see someone clueless thinking it does. Before totally writing it off, I'd look carefully at what's done with the dispatcher prior to executing this code.

As pointed out, this only makes sense if its run with an Invoke, instead of the BeginInvoke that's being used. Nevermind Frown | :(
We can program with only 1's, but if all you've got are zeros, you've got nothing.
