Length of the Indexes in LiveCode IDE

Post by galina » Fri Oct 23, 2015 5:10 pm

Hi,
I found that in certain situations is more convinient to create and then to delete fields or buttons from vithin the script any time when, for instance, the number of lines, to which you have to show controll buttons are different. It works perfect and easy, but I start to think, how long the programm, which I make, will be used, if any time when user does a certain action, a group of new buttons with new IDs is created? Is there a limitation for the ID number?
I hope, my question is more or less clear for the experts. :)
Thanks,

Klaus

Hi galina,

you can create about 4 million objects per stack before you run out of IDs :D
Get more info from the "User Guide" PDF (menu Help): "2.2.9 LiveCode Memory Limits"!

I think that's billions, not millions.

Yes, Richard is correct, my fault, it is more that 4 billion objects!
I any case we will have problems to reach this limit :D
