Append text stops working

Recommended Posts



In this code, why always after 5184, it stops appending text to EditBox?

I appreciate your help.

#include <ButtonConstants.au3>
#include <EditConstants.au3>
#include <GUIConstantsEx.au3>
#include <WindowsConstants.au3>
;#include <GUIConstants.au3>
#include <GuiEdit.au3>

;#include <ComboConstants.au3>
;#include <GuiStatusBar.au3>
;#include <StaticConstants.au3>

#Region ### START Koda GUI section ### Form=
Global $Form2 = GUICreate("Form2", 342, 242, 298, 178)
GUISetOnEvent($GUI_EVENT_CLOSE, "_exit")
Global $Edit1 = GUICtrlCreateEdit("", 8, 8, 329, 129)
GUICtrlSetData(-1, "")
Global $Button1 = GUICtrlCreateButton("Append Text", 50, 160, 100, 57)
GUICtrlSetOnEvent(-1, "_Start")
Global $StopBtn = GUICtrlCreateButton("Stop", 200, 160, 100, 57)
GUICtrlSetOnEvent(-1, "_Stop")
#EndRegion ### END Koda GUI section ###

Opt("GUIOnEventMode", 1)
Global $Running = 0
Global $count = 0

While 1

Func myfunc()
    If $Running = 1 Then
        _GUICtrlEdit_AppendText($Edit1,  $count & @CRLF )
        $count += 1

Func _Stop()
    $Running = 0
    ConsoleWrite("-Stopped" & @CR)
EndFunc   ;==>_Stop

Func _Start()
    $Running = 1
    ConsoleWrite("+Started" & @CR)
EndFunc   ;==>_Start

Func _exit()

No doubt you have reached the Windows character limit for the edit control - use _GUICtrlEdit_SetLimitText to increase it.

Any way to set it to unlimited? Or I need to enter 999999999999999 ?

Just now, Jos said:

Do you have unlimited memory in your Computer?
Give it a go and see what happens.


So I think it's better to delete the edit box texts at some points.

Thank you.
