How can I get the text that I select in a multi-line edit control to scroll into view.
I'm using SetSel

Cheers

I would suspect that if you know the starting character index, you would call LineFromChar() to get the line number and then call LineScroll() to position you to where you want...

m_MyEdit1.SendMessage(EM_SCROLLCARET);

This should do what you want.

Maybe I crazy, or just a little weird, but don't both of these two options do the same thing?

Yes, they do. Thanks poohbear 68, but I had to award the points to captainkirk as his/her comment was submitted first. Also captainkirk's solution is MFC rather than SDK.

Right.  No problem -- I fully understand.  So while we're at it anyhow, here's another way to do it!  :)  At least according to documentation, it works.   I guess I haven't tested it specifically.  <grin>

m_Edit.SetSel(m_Edit.GetSel(), FALSE);
