Re: Re: Is there a 77 KB limit on PluaApp PRC files from plua2c.exe?

Using PLUA2RT instead of PLUA2 did not resolve the issue.  I did however find a work-around for the issue of button events no longer firing.  I was using the label() function to draw text on the screen.  I did this many times.  Apparently doing this is what triggers the buttons to stop firing.  I converted my approach from many label() calls to instead be a single label() call, a screen capture at the location of the label, and then multiple pastes.  This approach seemed to resolve the problem.  I suspect that having too many controls is the basic problem, though that is just a guess.

Thanks for your help.

When inside a PRC, compiled Plua code must fit in 64KB. When the app
is loaded by the runtime, everything (code and variables) is loaded in
the PalmOS dynamic heap. The size of this heap varies between models.

I do not know. I have not seen this problem before.
