At the bar



  • With a former coworker and another friend of ours:

    Him: (developing an ASP.NET app for internal use) I was having problems detecting null values...
    Friend: Uh, "is DBNull"?
    Him: So I rolled my own.
    Me: Oh, jesus.
    Him: I just take every table in the database...
    Friend: ...
    Him: ...loop through every column...
    Me: You're going to wind up on TDWTF.
    Friend: Dude. "Is DBNull."
    Him: ...convert it to an empty string, check the length...
    Me: It's part of the framework!
    Him: Works great.
    Me: ...
    Friend: ...

    I personally would love to see his take on "void Batman()". TRWTF is that he reads the site, but missed the correct way to check for null values...



  • You, your coworker and friend on another topic:

    You:    So, you're trying to have a baby?
    Him: Yeah, but she just isn't getting pregnant; I think the condoms are causing a problem
    Friend: Why don't you just stop using them?
    Him: But I found a great workaround: I prick each one with a pin before ...

    o is DBNull
    DBNull.Value.Equals( o )
    o == DBNull.Value
    ( o as DBNull ) != null
    try { o.ToString() } catch { /* NULL /  } / NOT NULL /
    for( int i = int.MinValue; i < int.MaxValue; i++ ) if( i == o ) { /
    o is not null (or not an integer) */ }
    o.GetType().FullName == "System.DBNull"

    Ad nauseam.

    [quote user="joe.edwards@imaginuity.com"] for( int i = int.MinValue; i < int.MaxValue; i++ ) if( i == o ) { /* o is not null (or not an integer) */ } [/quote]

    I meant:    for( int i = int.MinValue; i < int.MaxValue; i++ ) if( i == o ) { /* o is not null */ } /* o is null or not an integer */
