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.

Because there is no other way to compare OrderNumber to 0 Laugh | :laugh:
   Private Function IsNew(ByVal OrderNumber As Long) As Boolean
      Return IIf(OrderNumber = 0, True, False)
   End Function
It's not horrible, but it's pretty representative for the code as a whole.
A lot of redundancy, a lot of global variables, no null values (but still NullReferenceExceptions...), Forms with 1000+ lines of code, etc.

VB is not the problem, it's the programmers that code it.
It's an OO world.
public class SanderRossel : Lazy<Person>
{
   public void DoWork()
   {
      throw new NotSupportedException();
   }
}
