VB6 -- is there a limit on the number of events that can be queued up?
Posted on 2009-07-10
Consider a complex form in VB6 that has LOTS and LOTS of buttons, dropdowns, etc, some of them kicking off data access calls, and therefore requiring some time (500 ms?) to complete.
It would be possible for the user to kick one of the data-intense processes, then click a bunch more things in that form while the data process caught up.
What would happen?
Is there a limit to the number of those events (not just clicks, but events caused by internal stuff too) which can be kept queued up?
And if the user exceeded this limit ... what would happen?
Would this cause the program to crash without a visible error message?
Thanks for any insight ...
