Microsoft’s general confusion with booleans

February 11, 2011 Leave a comment

One would think that a boolean is a pretty easy to grasp and define primitive data type.  True or False and that’s the end of story…

Unless of course you are Microsoft.

The Boolean with 3 possible values..

Type: BOOL

If the function retrieves a message other than WM_QUIT, the return value is nonzero.

If the function retrieves the WM_QUIT message, the return value is zero.

If there is an error, the return value is -1. For example, the function fails if hWnd is an invalid window handle or lpMsg is an invalid pointer. To get extended error information, call GetLastError.

Apparently -1 is not a nonzero value.

The TriStateBoolean with 5 possible values.. 3 of them not supported..

MsoTriState Enumeration

Office 2007

Office Developer Reference

Specifies a tri-state Boolean value.

Name Value Description
msoCTrue 1 Not supported.
msoFalse 0 False.
msoTriStateMixed -2 Not supported.
msoTriStateToggle -3 Not supported.
msoTrue -1 True.

Code monkey..

A Code monkey is a computer programmer or other person who writes computer code for a living. This term may be slightly derogatory, meaning that this developer can write some code but is unable (or not supposed to) to perform the more complex tasks of software architecture, analysis, and design. It is usually applied to junior programmers.[1]
