RichEdit search prob...

Hi there!!!

I have a RichEdit text field which contains more lines than it can be displayed without scrolling down. My problem is when i search for text in the RichEdit lines, and find what i'm search for, I can't see the founded(focused) text without scrolling down to it. How do i get the RichEdit to automaticaly scroll down to my found and "focused" text?

Thanks in advance for any help.

I used this code in TRichEdit component, I'm not sure if it works with TDBRichEdit component.

After finding your word make it selected text, example:

RichEdit1.SelStart:= FindIndex; // Found position
RichEdit1.SelLength:= Length(Edit1.Text); // Word to search

Make sure that HideSelection is False
