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.
