WPF Listbox Scroll to Bottom VB.Net

Last Modified: 2012-05-10
I am developing a WPF application that has a listbox.  In a standard windows form when I added an item to a listbox I could just use the TopIndex feature but that is not available in a WPF window.  

I have tried ScrollIntoView but I cannot get it to work.  Any help would be appreciated.

Public Sub UpdateStatus(ByVal s As String)
        Dim currDateTime As DateTime = DateTime.Now
        Dim sDateTime As String

        If (s <> gsLine) Then
            sDateTime = currDateTime.ToString("yyyyMMdd-HH:mm:ss> ")
            sDateTime = ""
        End If
        listStatus.Items.Add(sDateTime + s)
        listStatus.ScrollIntoView(listStatus.Items.Count - 1)
    End Sub

Open in new window

Yeah I am a WPF noob also :).  But i got it to work also.  I tried using the ScrollViewer several different ways and still couldn't get it to work. I guess I just don't know what I am doing and it is showing!
