Hi Zattz,

Use this code :

TextBox2.SelectionStart = TextBox2.Text.Length
TextBox2.ScrollToCaret()

Hi zattz,

With TextBox1
        .SelectionStart = .TextLength 'Move the insertion point to the end of the text
        .ScrollToCaret() 'Move the scroll position to the current insertion point
        .Focus() 'Focus on the textbox (if we have clicked a button to do this for example).
End With

zattz,

Which one? What happens? Is this being run from a button or some other event?

I do apologise. It does work.

I never noticed I was adding something else to the text after moving the caret...
