Textbox as logbook

P: n/a
Hi,

I am using a textbox to display, row by row, results of
Database-related operation.

One, is this a valid method or not?
Two, I see textbox.maxlength defaulted to 32767.
What problems do I run against increasing this limit?

Three: Information to be displayed can easily over pass the limit.
Is there a way to organize the info in a FIFO way, deleting the oldest
rows?

thanks
N! Xau

N,

Because that this size limit is a bug it is maybe in the next version not
true, however for the time being you can use the richtextbox.

I hope this helps,

This limit doesn't exist, at least not on non-Windows 98 systems.
'AppendText' is flawed and limited in length due to a bug, but you can
assign longer strings to a textbox' 'Text' property.

Maybe it's more user-friendly to use a listview control in details mode to
show the log information.
