FAQ1746C.txt   Limit of characters for a TEditFile
Category   :OWL
Platform    :All
Product    :BC++  5.x


Why does there seem to be a limit of 30,000 characters for my 
AppExpert editor application? I am targeting 32 bit so it should 
be unlimited.


The default limit is 30K. To increase this use EM_LIMITTEXT with a
value of -1 ( for the maximum ). In an OWL AppExpert application
use a post message to the TEditFile window:
 PostMessage( EM_LIMITTEXT, -1, 0L );
...otherwise if 16 bit you could play with EM_GETHANDLE,
 EM_SETHANDLE for a limited increase ( might go from ~30K
to ~48K ). If they have to stay with 16 bit they could download
 BIGEDx.ZIP from compuserve ( someones shareware large editor ).
