In my application (delphi 3) I use a DBmemo-field. At some records the text in the memo-filed in more than can be seen in one memo-box.

I am looking for a way to automaticly go to the latest line in the memofield.

In other words when I go to a new record I want that the program shows the lower content of the memofield.

Is there a way to move the cursor to that position ?

Without changing anything in the memo:

  SendMessage(DBMemo1.Handle, WM_VSCROLL, MakeWParam(SB_THUMBPOSITION, $FFFF), 0);

Is it moved cursor to the end of the text?

No, just scrolling. Cursor stays where it is.
