4096 Gui Controls Per Window

18 posts in this topic

Anyway, the title says it all. I was just wondering why AutoIt has a limit of 4096 controls per window and if there is a chance that this limitation could be changed.

"So man has sown the wind and reaped the world. Perhaps in the next few hours there will no remembrance of the past and no hope for the future that might have been." & _"All the works of man will be consumed in the great fire after which he was created." & _"And if there is a future for man, insensitive as he is, proud and defiant in his pursuit of power, let him resolve to live it lovingly, for he knows well how to do so." & _"Then he may say once more, 'Truly the light is sweet, and what a pleasant thing it is for the eyes to see the sun.'" - The Day the Earth Caught Fire

Are you running into the 4096 limit?

I'm curious if you are running into a 4096 limit... what in the world kind of GUI you've made... I can't imagine that many controls

Common sense plays a role in the basics of understanding AutoIt... If you're lacking in that, do us all a favor, and step away from the computer.

I got up to about 2100 on my Sudoku Solver, so I'm about halfway there. I could definitely see a listview getting that large (for example a file-searching engine listing out every picture or something).

Nice find

It's conceivable with ListView and Tree view since EACH List/TreeItem counts as one control....

Yup, i am running into the limit big time. My Search Engine creates a list view item for every search result. If there is over 4000 search results the ones over 4000 are simply not displayed. If you would like to see it you can find it here:

Just a thought. You probably to make your list view viritual. When the user scrols you have to keep track of it and update the list view. Google for samples in VB code doing just that (through API call's).

Thanks i didn't know about that but i would rather try my best to stick with native AutoIt functions if possible. I want to make this program as portable as possible and having it lug a bunch of dll and other libraries with it defeats the point. I will give it a try if there is no other alternative though.

Autoit3Ex.au3 (23) : ==> Can not redeclare a constant.:
Global Const $TVM_INSERTITEM =$TV_FIRST + 0
Global Const ^ ERROR

Hi,

Autoit3Ex.au3 (23) : ==> Can not redeclare a constant.:

Global Const $TVM_INSERTITEM =$TV_FIRST + 0

Global Const ^ ERROR

I can reproduce that in beta 116, but it is OK still in 114!

Go figure...

Is this what happens to you too?

Best, Randall

Yup, that is what was happening. The version 114 is working but the newer 116 isn't. Does anyone know why the newer beta version is erroring out?

I don't know what is wrong with your setup of AutoIt beta and Scite, but on mine it is working as a charm.

You must see the au3check version equal to 1.54.1.1

When you report problem don't forget this version line.

you need to check too the version of GUIListview.au3 (1st line ot it)

Hi randllac,

I have the same errors when I used the latest beta 116, I also notice that GUITreeView.au3 was updated and alredy include all those varibables. Once you remark those line your script work fine.
