Number of Controls - Smart Device - PPC 2002

P: n/a
Hi,

Can anyone tell me if there is an limit to the number of controls you can
have on any 1 windows form? The windows form is for a Smart Device
Application that runs on Pocket PC 2002. It's written in VB .NET using VS
2003.

My application has the following controls...

1 Form with

Menu (basic File & Exit options)
Tab Control with 12 tabs
Each tab has many controls on it...textbox, label, combobox etc.

I've reached a point that my app/form/tab control won't let me add ANY more
controls. Regardless of the type of control or where I place the control,
when I run the app in the emulator (or the actual device) I get a
"NotSupportedException" error. No other valuable information.

I've tried adding a control everywhere....the form, tab control, inside a
panel. The only thing I have not tried is a separate form but that seems a
little drastic to me and it would really hamper the UI design.

Any suggestions, comments, direction?

Thanks,

Jason
