TComboBox limitation under Windows 7 vs XP
Posted on 2014-01-22
I made a simple Delphi 2006 application with only a TComboBox component. When I populate the Text property with more than 37,443 characters, the characters are not visible in the ComboBox when I run the program under Windows 7. The characters are there because I can copy them to the clipboard, but I can't see them.. There is no such limitation when I run the same program under Windows XP. Any number of characters less than or equal to 37,443 show up under Windows 7.
My question is, what should I do to my program to make the characters visible under Windows 7?
