 SendMessage(RichEdit1.Handle, WM_VSCROLL, SB_LINEDOWN, 0);

ok but this assumes the height of the richedit is a multiple of its displayed font size. if I have a resizable richedit and I scroll down past the last item, when scrolling up using SB_LINEUP, lines are partially displayed at the top. how can I work around this?

Well, you can also use abs(RichEdit1.Font.Height) and RichEdit1.ScrollBy method
