  begin

     AssignFile(  DATAfile,Ime);

     Reset(  DATAfile);
 

     While not EOF (  DATAfile) do begin

     ReadLn(  DATAfile,READline);

     F.Memo1.Lines.Add (READline);

     end;

              // in this way doesent work

     F.  memo1.SelStart := length(memo1.Text);

     F.memo1.Perform(EM_ScrollCaret,0,0);

try this:
  Memo1.Lines.LoadFromFile('C:\readme.txt');
  Memo1.SelStart := Length(Memo1.Lines.Text) - 1;
  Memo1.SelLength := 1;

Can't make to work it in code before.

Problem if the text of memo has more lines that  memo is large:i can
see first par of text- not last.

do you have scrollbars on your memo? if so then where are they positioned after setting Selstart and SelLength?

you can use Memo1.Lines.LoadFromFile() instead of AssignFile()

and this works for me just fine:

procedure TForm1.Button1Click(Sender: TObject);
begin
  Memo1.Lines.LoadFromFile('c:\text.txt');
  Memo1.SelStart := Length(Memo1.Lines.Text) - 1;
  Memo1.SelLength := 1;
  Memo1.SetFocus;
end;

    begin

  Memo1.Lines.LoadFromFile('c:\text.txt');

  Memo1.SelStart := Length(Memo1.Lines.Text) - 1;

  Memo1.SelLength := 1;

  Memo1.SetFocus;

end;

first of all validate that this
'C:\PC1\Montaza\'+TSpeedButton(Sp).Caption+'\'+TSpeedButton(Sp).Caption+'.txt'
points to existing file.

and use OnActivate instead of OnShow, OnActivate guarantees you that all components are properly created and ready to take user input

It exist because i can read text into memo.

But the vertical scrollbar is  still positioned  the top.
