hi there,

i fairly new to Delphi so this might have a very simple answer,

I have a listBox and i can add items to it well enough, but when i add, lets call it, to many items a scrollbar appears on the right, good thing.

Here comes the Question:
is there a way i can make the listbox autoscroll to the last item if it is needed?

thanks in advance

procedure TForm1.Button1Click(Sender: TObject);
begin
  listbox1.ItemIndex := listbox1.Items.Add(edit1.Text)
end;

var
ScrollToLast: Boolean;


If ScrollToLast then
   ListBox1.ItemIndex := ListBox1.Items.Count-1;

Please colinvanniekerk, can you explain your accepting rules?

Meikl gave quiet the same answer, but before then the Ivanov G, so it was better at least a point splitting between kretzschmar and Ivanov_G

Also why a B grade? It solved exactly your question so the grade might be A...

its ok, f68,

ivanov's solution didn't select any item,
my solution selects allways the last item,
so it could be that ivanov's solution fits better.

but yes, colinvanniekerk, what did you expect to get for an a-grade?

Yes it did solve my question and i do apologise again for not including the matter of selecting the last item in the list.

I assigned a grade B because i felt it was a good answer, not an excelent one.
maybe my "excelent" is not your "excelent", but the question was a simple one and therefore the highest grade i though reasonable was "Good".

I now understand that i should rather use "Excelent" for "this answer solves my problem" and "Good" for "This answer points me in the right direction" and "Average" for "this answer helped, but i still need guidance".

does that answer your question Ferruccio68?

appologies for the point distribution, i do agree that kretzschmar should get half the points as i did not mention the selection of the item. Is there any way i can change the point distribution?

@does that answer your question Ferruccio68?

Yes, it does :))

Now welcome to Expert Exchange, as you're a new member here in Ex-Ex....

@Is there any way i can change the point distribution?

Ask the P.E. to re-open the question for points splitting (if meikl needs it, but if i know him i think that it doesn't matter for him :)))

well, thanks for the warm welcome,

I think it only fair to re-open this post so that the points can be evenly distributed amongst all three people involved, and a more acurate grading be offered.

thanks for your points offering, but my comment wasn't right as an assisted answer so don't worry about splitting points to me too...

and as meikl said that he don't mind about points, you could just move the grade from B to A if you want....

BTW Thanks again

If you want to select the item after the add

ListBox1.ItemIndex := ListBox1.Items.Add('SomeText');




at any other time you can call this to make the last item visible

ListBox1.Perform(LB_SETCARETINDEX, ListBox1.Items[ListBox1.Items.Count-1], MakeLParam(WORD(false), 0));
ListBox1.SetFocus;
