    Default Urgent..Limit of List box (Select HTML item)

    I am trying to load more than 100,000 records into a list box (Select HTML item) using ASP code. I heard that List box control in VB has a limit of 32,000 records. Is there a limit in ASP also.<BR><BR>thank you

    Default Um...

    why would you put 100,000 options in a select box, even if you could? That would take FOREVER to scroll through. I hate just getting to my state on certain forms, even when I just push my state letter several times until it gets to mine. I can&#039;t even fathom trying to make a selection of that many. Perhaps you should rethink what you are doing.

    I&#039;m not aware of any HTML restrictions but if you do this almost all browsers would crash or freeze under the sheer memory load. This is a really bad idea.

    Default Don't do it man - Someone will get killed

    Why don&#039;t you just list the few records as links on one page (say 20 - 25) , then you have Next and Previous buttons for next/prev page...? It&#039;s a common way.
