I might have spelled that wrong.
it still accepts all those 250 columns.
but the last ones will not show as they become hidden...

to really show what I mean, try this:
code:
$form = createobject("kixtart.form")
$form.size=$form.screen.width,300
$form.left=0

$list= $form.listview(,2,2 ,$form.clientwidth-4,240)

for $=0 to 200
$list.columns.add($,200).
next

$form.show
while $form.visible $=execute($form.doevents) loop
exit 0

first not shown is at 164 on my test.
then changing the width of the column 162 will show the 164 and so one...

so quick calculation...
162,5x200=16250x2=32500

eh, is that what?
isn't that just the same as kixtarts limit on string length?
so, where is the memory limit on this one?

btw, is the listview going to have the ability to add the newist at the top or do I have to script the movement of all items one down and then add the first?

Jooel - yeah the major thing left to add to the ListView is the Insert method for the Items collection, it will look like this:

$Item = $ListView.Items.Insert(index,string)

It will insert the item string at given index ... will get it in for the weekend build.

Jooel buddy - was doing some more playing (with the scriplet you provided) and i think you answered your own question there ... although I couldn't find any additional info on the web - it would seem that the ListView Header control has some sort of column/string cutoff point. Like you say - there must be a formula because if you reduce the size of the columns, more of them get displayed ... and 32K sounds like a nice round binary number to me.

Having said all that, not much I can do about this whole business I'm afraid ... other than maybe supporting a more robust Grid control in the future. Like I mentioned earlier (in another thread) - got (had) plans to implement a custom GRID control down the road (GridView/GridList?) but it is derived from the ListView control as well ... so probably same situation would occur ... maybe I'll rethink this or keep this in mind when that time comes.

Shawn,

here's another (less important) one:

Is it possible to display the MsgBox object
centered to the active Form by default ?

There's not much I can think of to control this from within the script ... quite stupid thing that MsgBox [Roll Eyes] [Big Grin]

J.

j, as discussed, the MsgBox function has a "mind of its own" ... could always construct your own message box UDF though [Wink]

Well, you coud "try" setting the icon as a resource from SHELL32.DLL. But from my experience so far, the resources out of SHELL32.DLL are not consistent across OS's. I always thought that they were. Syntax is as follows:

$MsgBoxIcon.Icon = "SHELL32.DLL;23"

where "23" is the resource ident from the dll.
