    Long lists and listboxes

    So i know you are supposed to not put too many items in a listbox but instead put in, say 500, or so at a time.
    But if the user will likely want to scroll right through the list which might be 40,000* items, how do you do manage to create
    the illusion for the user that all the items are in the list as they scroll?
    Or how do people manage this if that is not possible to do?
    Thanks for any guidance.

    (*plus the added complication of the listcount going negative above 32K)

    virtual scrolling

    I think Trick has an example of this with a listview, and Krool's VBFlexGrid component also has this.

    Great, that looks like what I'm looking for, thank you.
