I am using a textbox in my app. I have turned on the multiline feature and enabled scrollbars to appear. The one thing i cant figure out is how to set the vertical scrollbar to the bottom of what is inside the textbox's text field.
The reason is because i continuously add more text into this textbox all the time via a text file from my hard drive. Every time i add more and more text into the box the scrollbar remains "fixed" at the top of the box which completely makes sense, but i am looking for an automatic way of tell it to set the vertical scrollbar to the very bottom of the box.

Every time you add text to the box, set the focus to the text box and use the SendKeys statement with 'PGDN' (Page Down) to send a few page down keystroks to it.
Hope that helps.
