Hi,

I have a multiline CEdit control with a vertical scroll bar.
I am appending strings in it and I want the scroll bar to be always down.

Here's the code I have, which does not work:

int lMinPos;
int lMaxPos;

mMyEditControl.GetScrollRange( SB_VERT, &lMinPos, &lMaxPos );
mMyEditControl.SetScrollPos( lMaxPos, TRUE );


What can I do to make it work?
Thanks!

Use the function SetSel of CEdit with bNoScroll with TRUE.

If you don't want to mess with the current selection, you can also use LineScroll to scroll the edit control.  You can use GetFirstVisibleLine and GetLineCount to make sure it scrolls the last line into view.

Hope this helps.

mMyEditControl.PostMessage(WM_VSCROLL, SB_BOTTOM, 0);
