WPF Listbox Scroll to Bottom VB.Net

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.

Thanks!
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> ")
        Else
            sDateTime = ""
        End If
        listStatus.BeginInit()
        listStatus.Items.Add(sDateTime + s)
        listStatus.ScrollIntoView(listStatus.Items.Count - 1)
        listStatus.EndInit()
    End Sub

I found this guys post and was able to get it to work using the code below:

*I'm a WPF noob, though, so I don't really understand it yet.  There might even be a better approach but I have no idea...
    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> ")
        Else
            sDateTime = ""
        End If

        listStatus.Items.Add(sDateTime + s)
        Dim sv As ScrollViewer = FindScroll(listStatus)
        If Not IsNothing(sv) Then
            sv.ScrollToEnd()
        End If
    End Sub

    Private Function FindScroll(ByVal lb As ListBox) As ScrollViewer
        Dim scroll_border As Border = VisualTreeHelper.GetChild(lb, 0)
        If TypeOf scroll_border Is Border Then
            Dim scroll As ScrollViewer = scroll_border.Child
            If TypeOf scroll Is ScrollViewer Then
                Return scroll
            End If
        End If
        Return Nothing
    End Function

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!
