Popup follow-on from yesterday


Well, there is another difference between the msgbox function and popup method as was pointed out to me by several people. Msgbox only displays the first 1024 characters of a dialog whereas popup displays a lot more (I haven’t looked to see what the actual limit is although I can certainly fill the screen and more besides). Taking yesterdays script and adding this immediately before the call to msgbox

szMessage = “”
for i = asc(“a”) to asc(“z”)
    szMessage = szMessage & String(100,i)
next

Msgbox will display

but Popup will display

So now you know, but please, no more emails if there are other differences!
