Is there anybody who can tell me what is the
limit of controls we can put on one tabpage on a window?? I am using
power builder 7.0.03.

I made a tabpage which contains so many controls, when I
tried to put any other control after that Power builder gives
unexpected error and crashes.

    ive not heard of any limit to the number of controls...

    if u dont have the latest patch of PB7 then download it from and apply it...

    most of such crashing probs are solved by applying the latest patch...

    There is no limit on placing controls.
    But before doing so, regenerate that window in the Library Painter.
    If it succeed, then try to do so, otherwise apply the latest path, which is Build 10312.

    I already have build 10312 and I have also regenerated the
    window. It is successfully regenerated but still does not allow
    to add more controls. If I delete some controls then PB allow
    me to add the deleted number of controls agains and after
    that it crashes again.

    if you can send me the file, I can work around.
    Otherwise tell me what controls you have already on this window.
    Is there any OLE controls on this window?

    Tell me exactly how many controls inside the tabpage.

    Author Comment

    there are 135 controls on the window including many datawindows,
    labels, buttons, picture buttons etc but there is no OLE control inside it.
    All objetcs are normal power builder.

    Accepted Solution

    Yeah. I solved this problem by this way.

    Create the whole tab as a user object, and in that tab place ur tabpages, then inside the tabpage place as much as controls as you want.

    It works fine.
