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.

Where do you see the problem behind that code that justifies it to be posted in the Weird and Wonderful?
 
Well, that IsNew function should better be a function of the Order class and not need a parameter (because OrderNumber could be expected to be a Property).
 
But otherwise? Does VB.Net have the ternary operator like C# (return OrderNumber = 0 ? true : false;)? I don't know.
 
Or did you want to tell us that it's better to do the comparison of OrderNumber to 0 whenever that IsNew function is used? Oh no! That would deserve to be posted here! IsNew clearly tells you the intention of the code, while If(OrderNumber=0) does not.
