Only 4096 GUI Controls per window?

2 posts in this topic

I have been writing a search engine (as some of you may already know) and i noticed that when i search for a file and it appears more than 4096 controls are created. There is a search result control created for every search result. I was therefore wondering if there is anyway around this restriction other than simply creating a new GUI? Is there a way i can get around this using some other method. My current script performs the GUICtrlCreateListViewItem() function every time a search result is found and adds it to the current list. Can anyone help me? I really want to find a way around this limitation.

Hi,

If you are looking for a workaround, look at the SQL last link in my signature.

Consider modifying my ListView based on GUIListView with SQL database.

It only uses Excel and OWC View (additionally) if they are installed; not necessary.

it can handle , say, 500,000 rows, one screen [choose 1 to 4000 rows at a time as you need] at a time, easily findable.

It sorts them rapidly after clicking on the column for sort order.

It can rapidly export current screen view to an Excel file.

It can rapidly export whole database to OWC. [easily fixed for over 63,000 if you need the 272,000 available]

If you click on any table ,it will produce an Excel chart based on last 2 columns selected [Control-click a column, then another], in that table .

If you click on a table you have named with "Graph" in the title, it will produce an Excel chart based on columns 2 and 3 in that table you have (rapidly) queried from the main table.

If you click on a table you have named with "Compare" in the title, it will produce an Excel chart based on columns 2,3,4,5 in that table you have (rapidly) queried from the main table.

Let me know if it suits you..

Best, Randall
