32k limit for TMemo

I am trying to create an HTML editor. My problem is that I would like to be able to use it to edit large files and TMemo will not accept files that are larger than 32k. Is there any way around this limit or would I have to use some other component? If I do have to use another component, where can I find one (preferably shareware)?

Not to dis your project...but why re-invent the wheel.  There
are many fine HTML editors already out there.  There are
some freeware too where you can pick up the source code if you
are meaning to implement into a current project.

Check out the Delphi Super Page.

mheacock: There are 3 reqirements i have for an HTML editor:
1.  The problem I'm asking about - it has to be able to edit large files
2.  New HTML tags are being added all the time (well, every now and then at least) so it must be easy to add new tags (custom toolbar).
3.  If, for any reason, I have to edit the .HTM file in a plain text editor or word processor, the code must be easy to read. In other words

<P>
More text

and not

(This isn't a problem unless it's a WYSIWYG editor.

I have not yet found an HTML editor that fulfills all these reqirements and is also easy to use. I figured it would probably be easier to make my own than take the time to download the various shareware/freeware editors, install them, try them out, then delete them and download more if I'm not satisfied. Of course, if you know of an HTML editor that fulfilles these requirements, then that would be a quite acceptable solution to my problem.

chrb: I forgot to mention that I'm using Delphi 1. Cmemo is for Delphi 2. See also my comment to mheacock.

The problem is that Delphi 1 is only 16 bits and then it can't access more than 64kb in an array so I am not sure if it is possible to make a component like that. It is possible, but I is very diffucult I think :( Sorry, I can't help you :( Switch to Delphi 2/3 :-)
