What’s wrong with this ?

From a long list of things I’m amazed I didn’t see more quickly.

Summary

Do you sometimes find you go looking for a difficult problem when what you have is a simple problem ?

Todays Learning Point

Todays learning point is : if something weird is happening look at the simple things first.

 private bool _blnShowContractTabs;
 public bool blnShowContractTabs
 {
 get { return _blnShowContractTabs; }
 set { _blnShowContractTabs = value; }
 }

 private bool _blnShowAddEditLinks;
 public bool blnShowAddEditLinks
 {
 get { return _blnShowAddEditLinks; }
 set { _blnShowContractTabs = value; }
 }

I spent a little while today looking for a “big problem” which turned out to be a carelessly typed property set statement (… carelessly typed by me … I should add).

Zen ?

I was listening to the This Developers Life podcast the other day and Michael Moore spoke about problem solving and times when your problem isn’t really a problem at all (he expressed it much better than I could). I thought about Michael when I found this one !
