What is max number of records you can use to populate a list and/or combo box?

I saw it somewhere and just can't remember. Thanks!

Boy I don't know but I know too many kind of defeats the purpose of good GUI logic anyways  :o

RE: combo and list box limits.....

There should be an easy answer, but I can't find one, not even in the VFP docs on system capacities.  One theory is that there is no limitation.

I just tried both a list box and combo box using RowSourceType of Fields, using a table with over 4700 records.  Worked just fine.

"Array" is one of the valid RowSourceTypes.  Arrays are limited in VFP to 65,000 elements (not rows, but total elements), so if you used an array as the source, that would be a hard limit.

While it may be a defeat of the gui... the age old dictum... if the customer wants it and wants if badly... what' a programmer to do?

You're err the customer is right of course!  Incremental Search helps some too.  I did remeber seeing some thread regarding this and buggy behavior but forget the version of FoxPro that was used.  As FoxDev was doing, there's one way to find out...try it.  I'm curious too to the technical limitation here.  If I find out I'll post it.
