Showing the BOTTOM of TMemo text

Posted on 2003-11-06
Last Modified: 2010-04-05
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?

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!
