There is a total limit. But not a limit per type of control. I think the limit is 256. But you always make control arrays.

Mirkwood is correct - it exists and I had the misfortune of finding that out the hard way. I never counted all the controls but it was in the region of 250 (mixed types) so the reasonable assumption is 256. ( 32 bit OS with 8 bit controls - Microsoft )
