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, embarrassing 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.

Bear in mind that "numbers" like 35e7 are often validated as numeric, but of course represent very large numbers (even though they're relatively short in terms of number of characters, so putting a MaxLength on a text field won't stop it!). They can occur in numeric input when a user mis-types. When testing validation of numeric input, it's always worth testing this case.

Sorry for a late post on this thread, but it might be of interest/use to someone someday! Smile | :)

(And as for asking "are you really sure..." you can guarantee that at some point the user will click "yes" and then you're still left with the original bug anyway. )
