Hi

Just do this:

SendMessage(MemoName.Hadle,EM_LINESCROLL,NX,NY);

Nx is the amount of chars you wants to scroll horiztontally,
Ny the amount of lines verticaly

Sorry, but this doesn't work! I've got Delphi 2.0, maybe this is the Problem.

Hi Shellman,

it should normally work. Which version of Delphi are you using?

try :

sendmessage(memo1.Handle, WM_VSCroll, SB_LINEDOWN,0); to scroll one line down

Regards, Zif.

These two ways work:
memo1.perform(EM_LINESCROLL,2,memo1.Lines.Count);
sendmessage(memo1.Handle, WM_VSCroll, SB_LINEDOWN,0);
Thank you!

Shellman,

You have two ways to do it :

1. Give the points to only one person :
 just give a comment here, who earns the points and this person can then answer the q'n after which you can grade it.
2. split the points.

To split points :
you can ask linda gardner to do it (costumer service of E-E).

But you can do it also on yuor own :

1. because the q'n is already answered once, you can't delete this one anymore. So, give a comment that this q'n is already solved and then others know that they don't have to find for a solution anymore.
--> After a while (believe 30 days without action at thread) the points will return to you, because the q'n was never solved.
2. you open two new q'ns with the names to whom you want to give the points (you can decide how many points you want to give to each of these persons).
e.g. to Shellman, to MyGirl
3. The addressed persons will answer the q'n by giving a dummy one or the one proposed here already (better)
4. Then you can grade the answeres

Regards, Zif.
