hi all,

I want to scroll automatically down in a TSTringGrid (borland cpp builder 6) when i add an item to the grid.  I haven't found yet how to do this.  I want that the latest added item is always visible and selected.
I tried to send a message to the stringgrid as if i would scoll on it with my mouse:

PostMessage((HWND)StringGrid1->Handle,WM_MOUSEWHEEL,1,1);

unfortunately this does not work.  Am i missing something?

Another way:

      StringGrid1->TopRow = StringGrid1->RowCount - StringGrid1->VisibleRowCount;

You can control the selection with the Selection property.  For example:

      TGridRect tgr;
      tgr.Left = tgr.Right = 0;
      tgr.Top = tgr.Bottom = StringGrid1->RowCount - 1;
      StringGrid1->Selection = tgr;
