WTF C# code of the month

Posted by Jeroen Pluimers on 2012/03/14

When I come across code like this, I’m always astonished:

			catch(Exception ex)
			{
				string strMess = ex.Message;
			}

What was the person thinking when he wrote this? Did he get distracted and nobody else notice this before checking it into their version control system?

In the same module:

		private string ToString(object myVal)
		{
			try
			{
				if (myVal != System.DBNull.Value)
					return myVal.ToString().Trim();
			}
			catch{}

			return "";
		}
