TMemo cursor issue

My memo shows line 0 to 9 and its count is 30 (-> scrollbars show up). I set my cursor to line 15 via SelStart. How can I make my memo show the cursor, i.e. scroll to line 15.

Actual workaround:

SelLength := 1;
SelLength := 0;
take a look to the em_scrollcaret api

should be like


maybe you must include the unit richedit into the uses-clause (not sure)

just from head

A simple call to SelLength does it? Weird...

not really weird

internal is called then th em_setsel message

part from the docu about em_setsel
In previous versions of Windows, the wParam parameter is a flag that is set to FALSE to scroll the caret into view or set to TRUE to omit the scrolling. A Win32-based application should use the EM_SCROLLCARET message to scroll the caret into view.

guess it works because of this
