Multiple TMemo Windows

In My MDI Application I have the need to open several
Instances of a TMemo Window. How do I refference the
different windows. Are they "Arrayed", memo[0],[1] etc?
Prefferably, I would like to refference by name somehow.
Can I give each instance a different name/label/etc?

Also, to keep only the last 100 lines of a nearly
continuous stream of text(TCP/IP news feed), I use :
 while (frmStatus.statusOut.Lines.Count > 100) do
           begin
           frmStatus.statusOut.Lines.Delete(0);
           end
The problem is that when I delete(0), the cursor position
follows. With a steady stream of input, this makes for
some pretty jumpy Reading. Can I Delete(0) without
positioning the cursor?

If you create your components (TMemo) at design-time, use help to check out the FindComponents command.  You can use this to find a component of a specific name and then use it accordingly.  They have a good example which goes along with it.

As for your other question...I'll experiment and add comments leter...but you might want to disabling the component before deleting...this my or may not work.
