Is there a way append to a line in a Memo?
In other words, if I have add the line "This is a test" to a Memo, and then add " This is a test again", I want the line to show "This is a test This is a test again" on one line, not on 2 separate lines.

Memo.Text := 'This is a test';
Memo.Text := Memo.Text + ', ' + 'This is a test again';

This code works !!!

esoftbg's solution works if you only want add to the end of the memo.  If you want to add onto multiple lines I think you need to index the lines property.

Memo.Lines[1] := Memo.Lines[1] + 'This is a test again';

Thanks, both of you answered my question. I don't know why I didn't try that, for some reason I didn't think that would work. :)
