    String Table Question

    A quick question:

    Is there a maximum number of characters for a string in a string table or is that just a MSVC string editor constraint?

    Many thanks

    I can't say for certain, but I believe strings in a string table can be of any length (ignoring any limits imposed by the control) and are treated like constants. Are you having problems fitting a really long string in?
