Autoit-gui Max Control

12 posts in this topic

What is the reasonable maximum number of control that AutoIt-gui must provide?

Today is small 100. I have no idea of the impact on the size when running a script.

Thanks to comment why the limit should such or such.

@jpm: I have a script which has between 95 and 107 controls.

The most of them are checkboxes.

It's like an software-choose-screen, there you can choose SW to delete from an preinstalled pc which has preinstalled sw on it you know.

So I don't know if 100 should be the highest control-number...

We really need some sort of generic container to store this kind of stuff internally so there doesn't need to be a limit. I did have something I was working on that allocated things in blocks to try to minimize both re-allocation and wasted space, but it was being very mean to me. It was difficult to get iterators working and they were pretty much mandatory as operator[] was unsafe. Maybe I should go back and look at it again and try to get it working...

One of my VB students once ran into VB's limitation of 255 controls on a form. He wanted to put about 300 controls on a form. So he split it, with my recommendation, into a series of screens based on functionality, essentially a wizard. :whistle:

I think a limit of 255 control would also work for AutoItGUI. It would also allow for an optimization of using 1 byte for the count/identity of controls (0-255). Of course, a window with no controls is a little boring. B)

So, 232, nearest number is 256 = 512 B)

The mean of the vote as the same trend.

Did you see the colored labels?

That I think end my evolution on GUI. It will be yours soon. :whistle:
