While wading through hundreds of disallowed implicit casts and such from turning option strict on for a large project, Tevildo came across this little gem.

Sort of like Visual Studio's comment tasks except potentially visible to the user. Who knows, it might actually get attended to if a user reports it as a bug.

Public ReadOnly Property EntityTypeDescription As String
    Get
        'DAVE: I edited this as I don't think its needed any more. Let me know if you disagree.
        'If Me.EntityTypeLUT IsNot Nothing Then
        '    Return Me.EntityTypeLUT.Description
        'End If
        
        Return "Need to fix this"
    End Get
End Property

No word on who "Dave" is though.

Also, Chris was looking at some code left by a recently departed colleague. He wrote, "I never had a great deal of confidence in his coding ability, so the SQL injection vulnerabilities aren't a great surprise, but I had though he would have known of the existence of the OR operator."

String searchString="select * from ProjectAndTask_view"; 
if (searchWhere !=""){
  searchString=searchString + " where ProjectCode like '" + searchWhere + "%' union " ;
  searchString=searchString + "select * from ProjectAndTask_view where ProjectDesc like '" + searchWhere + "%' union " ;
  searchString=searchString + "select * from ProjectAndTask_view where TaskCode like '" + searchWhere + "%' union " ;
  searchString=searchString + "select * from ProjectAndTask_view where TaskDesc like '" + searchWhere + "%'" ; 
} 
searchString = searchString + " ORDER BY sortval";

Finally, I'm in the same boat with Daniel Thomson - regex scares me a little, OK, a lot actually. But I don't mind using fairly simple regex in my code. It's tidy and saves processing power. He came across this in a website that he's currently maintaining, still not sure what the num variable is for. Better safe than sorry I guess.

function checkAlpha(sStr)
{
var alpha = 'abcdefghijklmnopqrstuvwxyzABCDEFGHIJKLMNOPQRSTUVWXYZ';
var num   = '0123456789';
var Char;
var isChar = true; 
for (var i=0;(i<sStr.length) && (isChar==true);i++)    
    {
    Char = sStr.charAt(i);
    if (alpha.indexOf(Char)==-1)
        { 
        isChar=false;
        }
    }
return isChar;
} //end function
