Scrolling a control?

How do I change the scrolled location on a control? Basicly, I want to scroll to the bottom of the document when an event occurs.

Thank you for your time,

ArrummzenAuthor Commented:
AxSHDocVw.AxWebBrowser

Its a HTML rendering control.

I am setting the HTML in the control myself. Is there a way I could write the HTML doc so the browser jumps to the bottom? (How would I make a web site the jumps the the bottom when loaded?). That would probly solve the problem.

Try this (just a guess):

        [DllImport("user32.dll")]
        static extern int PostMessage(
            IntPtr wnd,
            uint Msg,
            IntPtr wParam,
            IntPtr lParam);

        const uint WM_VSCROLL = 0x0115;
        const uint SB_BOTTOM = 7;


To scroll control tp the end:

PostMessage(control.Handle, WM_VSCROLL, (IntPtr)SB_BOTTOM, (IntPtr)IntPtr.Zero);

[DllImport] gives me -
The type or namespace name 'DllImport' could not be found (are you missing a using directive or an assembly reference?)

How do I fix that?

Any other ideas?

How can I determine the size at which the control would have no scroll bars? Some how query it to determine its logical size?

Well, if it's that hopeless, what about trying SendInput() API? Send an End key to it. It may work...

I actualy came up with my own method. I inserted a JavaScript into the document, that used the Scrollto method, to scroll to the bottom.

Here is the working sample code:

            public const int INPUT_KEYBOARD = 1;
            public const int KEYEVENTF_KEYUP = 0x0002;

            public struct KEYDBINPUT
            {
                  public Int16 wVk;
                  public Int16 wScan;
                  public Int32 dwFlags;
                  public Int32 time;
                  public Int32 dwExtraInfo;
                  public Int32 __filler1;
                  public Int32 __filler2;
            }

            public struct INPUT
            {
                  public Int32 type;
                  public KEYDBINPUT ki;
            }

            [DllImport("user32")] public static extern int SendInput( int cInputs, ref INPUT pInputs, int cbSize );

            public void HoldKey( Keys vk )
            {
                  INPUT input = new INPUT();
                  input.type = INPUT_KEYBOARD;
                  input.ki.dwFlags = 0;
                  input.ki.wVk = (Int16)vk;
                  SendInput( 1, ref input, Marshal.SizeOf( input ) );
            }

            public void ReleaseKey( Keys vk )
            {
                  INPUT input = new INPUT();
                  input.type = INPUT_KEYBOARD;
                  input.ki.dwFlags = KEYEVENTF_KEYUP;
                  input.ki.wVk = (Int16)vk;
                  SendInput( 1, ref input, Marshal.SizeOf( input ) );
            }

            public void PressKey( Keys vk )
            {
                  HoldKey( vk );
                  ReleaseKey( vk );
            }

            private void button2_Click(object sender, System.EventArgs e)
            {
                  richTextBox1.Focus();
                  HoldKey( Keys.RControlKey );
                  PressKey( Keys.End );
                  ReleaseKey( Keys.RControlKey );
            }

When button2 is pressed, it focuses richTextBox1 control in my form, and holds the Ctrl key, presses End key and then releases Ctrl key.. Ctrl+End is a better hotkey then just End key.. works for almost all viewer/editors..
By the way, if you want to do this for an external application, just set it as a foreground window, activate it and send the same keys..
