Now, I haven't seen that before...

Someone in our sister company has an application which they maintain, the main developer having left to be a computer science professor in China. He had a problem which, as far as I can see was due to a dialog having so many items on it that that Visual Studio 6 dialog editor wouldn't allow any more to be added. Certainly, I don't think that I have ever seen a dialog with more individual widgets on it, and I have seen some complex dialogs in my time, but I have never come across a limit before. The editor is obviously very insistent about this, you can't add objects and if you copy one you can't paste it. Fortunately, however, if you add some more widgets in the text editor you can then move them around in the graphical editor, so we live to fight another day.
