Hello:

     This problem should be easy, but I can't seem to figure  out how to scroll the client area of an owner drawn listbox successfully.  I want the listbox to scroll to its maximum down position (for a vertical scroll bar) each time a new line is added to the listbox.  I've tried ScrollWindowEx() for the client area and SetScrollInfo() for the scroll bar position but i can't seem to get it to work.  This is in Win32 API, using WinMain().  Example code and answers are appreciated.  Thanks in advance,
           Regards,
              Peter Huene

Try, if it's C:

nIndex = SendMessage( hListBox, LB_GETCOUNT, 0, 0 );
SendMessage( hListBox, LB_SETTOPINDEX, nIndex-1, 0 );

or for C++:

pListBox->SetTopIndex( pListBox->GetCount() - 1 );
