edit control freezes

3 posts in this topic

Hi All,

I have an app that writes progress/event messages to an edit control and scrolls automatically to the bottom. This window freezes after appx. 700-800 lines. THe purpose of these messages is stricly informative.

Q1 - Maybe using an edit window is not the best idea for this function...this is notification only...no input/change.

Any suggestions are VERY welcome.

q2 - Is there a limit to the amount of data written to the edit control? If so, can I get around the limit?

The code is a little lengthy so have not posted it yet, but would be glad to do so.

Thanks,

Kylomas

kylomas,

An edit control is a perfectly reasonable choice for what you are doing - I would perhaps suggest using the $ES_READONLY style so that the user cannot change the content. :P

Is there a limit to the amount of data written to the edit control?

Yes, about 32k characters by default. You can change this by using GUICtrlSetLimit. If that does not solve the problem then please post your code so we can look for other problems. :x
