loadpicture() function fails, out of memory.
Posted on 1997-06-20
I am writing a VB5 program where I load image controls at run time, and seem to be running out of memory. The application will load about 20 image controls, then it just locks up. If I try to load another VB application I get a bunch of "out of memory" errors. However, I have 24 meg of ram, and the system performance and the resource meter say that I have about 90% memory available? what is happening? is it running into the old 640k block? is there any way to fix this? or am I limited in the number of controls I can add to a form? if I can't fix the problem, is there a way I can determine how much memory is available through VB, so that I know when I have to quit adding controls?
