I need to scroll a TMemo to the current caret position.  I know how to do this in Windows but how would I do it in Kylix?

Windows code:
SendMessage(LogMemo.Handle, EM_SCROLLCARET, 0, 0);

Hi, abarilla:

In Kylix (and also Delphi6 using clx) TMemo has a new property: CaretPos.

In order to move the caret you set this property:

var
  c:tcaretPos;

c.line := 1;  
c.col := 1;
memo1.caretPos := c;

c.line := memo1.lines.count-1;  
c.col := 1;
memo1.caretPos := c;

When you set memo1.caretPos, the control automatically scrolls to make the caret visible.

I think:
 
c := memo1.caretPos;
memo1.caretPos := c;

will scroll memo1 to make the caret visible.
