Hi,

I'm trying to use the standard library controls (Include\Controls\) to create a form, but for some reason the CEdit control (Include\Controls\Edit.mqh) limits the entry in 63 chars.

How to bypass this limitation?

Looks like the the CEdit control is build over the OBJ_EDIT regular object, and it's 63 char limitation is associated to it.

Nevertheless, I still need a solution. Any workaround ideas are welcome.

Thanks in advance.

Not that I'm aware of sorry. Not knowing your GUI design, the only thing I could suggest is having a second Edit box? (pretty lame I know!)

It could be a solution if it was a label, but unfortunately it's a input box.

Thanks a lot for you answer anyway.
