Hi,
Here is an example of one way to solve it:

var
  MyString: string;
begin
  MyString := 'Whatever';
  ListBox1.ItemIndex := ListBox1.Items.Add( MyString );
  RichEdit1.Lines.Add( MyString );

  //  RichEdit1.SelStart := RichEdit1.SelStart - 2; // optional, preceed the CR+LF

  // RichEdit1.SelStart := RichEdit1.SelStart - Length( MyString ) - 2; // optional, start of added string
  // RichEdit1.SelLength := Length( MyString );

  SendMessage( RichEdit1.Handle, EM_SCROLLCARET, 0, 0 );

Uncomment the commented lines to get variations on the richedit selections after adding.

For the listbox, you can also use this way....

Listbox1.ItemIndex := Lo(listbox1.Items.count - 1);

Hope this helps a bit!
