The trick is to use the em_LineFromChar message.  Try this:

procedure TMyForm.BitBtn1Click(Sender: TObject);
var
  iLine : Integer ;
begin
   iLine := Memo1.Perform(em_LineFromChar, $FFFF, 0);
   { Note: First line is zero }
   messageDlg('Line Number: ' + IntToStr(iLine), mtInformation,
              [mbOK], 0 ) ;
end;

or

{The following two methods are used to get row/column coordinates.     }
{There are no messages that explicitly provide column information but the}
{EM_GETSEL message provides the position of the caret if a selection is  }
{not currently active. When text is selected the caret can be positioned at }
{the beginning or the end of the selection depending how it was selected.}
{Thus these methods may be slightly inaccurate while text is selected. }

function  TNotePad.GetColumn: SmallInt;
begin
  Result := (SelStart+SelLength) -        {Assume that caret is at end of Selection}
            Perform(EM_LINEINDEX, -1, 0); {Method version of SendMessage}
end;

function  TNotePad.GetRow: SmallInt;
begin
  Result := LongRec(Perform(EM_LINEFROMCHAR, -1, 0)).Lo; {Get Low word}
end;
