I'm working a bit with SQL Server Reporting Services 2005 these days, and discovered a pretty funny bug. Somebody has probably found it already, but I think it is kind of funny. This is how it's reproduced:
- Create a new report in the report designer.
- Click some element, the report itself, for instance, and select Background Color: Expression in the properties window.
- Select "Custom", pick a color, red for instance, and double click it do put it into the expression window.
- Click OK and watch the report turn.... BLUE!
It looks like the hex-formatted color string is reversed when it is inserted into the expression editor window.
So where do I find the guys who wrote it, hmm. Was it out my office door, to the right and 50 meters straight ahead?
