Showing the BOTTOM of TMemo text

I have a TMemo with a lot of text already loaded into it, so that it has a scrollbar when it appears to the user. Is there some quick way I can have the BOTTOM of the text visible, with the scrollbar pushed all the way down of course, when the user first sees the TMemo?

  memo1.SelStart := length(memo1.Text);  //caret to end
  memo1.Perform(EM_SCROLLCARET,0,0)      //caret in view

Thanks Ray ... it worked. kretschmar's prolly does too, but Ray's is first.


Funny how every time I think there MUST be a native Delphi command to do something it turns out there isn't!
