Hi!

I have a program where I read a file (roughly 800K) into a RichEdit box.  I then want to add some text to it (EditBox.Lines.Add(string));

I keep getting the EOutOfResources exeption.

Any way to solve this?

try

richedit1.perform(EM_EXLIMITTEXT,0,$0FFFFFFF);

(you can play with the $0FFFFFFF paramater,
which is just the max amount of bytes a richedit can hold, default is 64K)

before loading the text or adding text ti it

$0FFFFFFF(256 MB)  would be a bit too much
$FFFFF would be 1MB and enough for your needs

Hi, sorry for the delay...I was on vacation for a few days.

When I added your line, I got:

Undeclared Identifier: 'EM_EXLIMITTEXT'.

I'm assuming I should add something to the uses clause, but what?

Thanks for your help

Well, I looked into the online manuals, and added

Uses RichEdit,

and voila!  It works like a dream.  Thanks for all your help!

glad to helped you,paul.

well, i forgot to inform you that you have to add richedit into the uses-clause, because there are all the richtext-message constants declared, but you found it already byself :-)

good luck again
