How to handle a large number of multiselected files with the VB6 common dialog?
Posted on 2004-04-07
With multi-select, I use these settings for the VB6 common dialog
CommonDialog3.flags = cdlOFNAllowMultiselect Or cdlOFNFileMustExist Or cdlOFNExplorer
CommonDialog3.MaxFileSize = 10240
Beyond about 50 files selected, the files don't get identified. and therefore processeed. If I increase the MaxFileSize by a large amount, things freeze up.
Is there a workaround, or a way to warn the user not to select so many files, or am I missing something in my code?
From the experts, advice please!
