How do you issue a scroll top in the memo field?

I have a memo field on my form. I populate it from a
text file so it scrolls down. However, after the load
is completed, i want to position to the first line.  Right
now the user would have to move it manually
using the scroll bar.

Any ideas?

hi waipahu,

? happens not to me,
if i use the TMemo.Lines.LoadFromFile-method

if u use another method for loading the text, then try
memo1.selstart := 0;

I perform the following code until a certain condition

after i'm finish loading, i want to set it to the top,
not the bottom.

sorry, i'm loading lines from a dbase file.
I'm not loading the whole file but a few records.

Selstart :=0 will not position it to the first line.

I guess a general question regarding the memo field
is how do you control movement within the memo field?

For instance, what if i had a UP button and a Down Button,
what statement would I use to move up one line or
move down one line in the memo field? Or go top or
go bottom within the memo field.

I guess it's a navigation question.

Your help would be greatly welcomed.

Thank you very much experts :)

hi again waipahu,
well there is missed a line

  memo1.selstart := 0;

this will scroll the caret into the visible area

with one of this the wparam values

SB_LINEDOWN      Scrolls down one line.
SB_LINEUP      Scrolls up one line.
SB_PAGEDOWN      Scrolls down one page.
SB_PAGEUP      Scrolls up one page.
