This is a blue moon

This is a blue moon.

AnsiString as = "This is a ";
Form1->Memo1->Lines->Add(as);
// OK so far...

I am puzzled as to how I might underline one word in a line of text being added or inserted into an ansistring within a Memo object.

Using
Form1->Memo1->Font->Style = TFontStyles() << fsUnderline;
has the unfortunate effect of rewriting the whole of the existing text in the memo object in the underlined style. To reiterate- I want just one word underlined.

Is there a way to exert more precise control over what gets written to the memo object?

Not with the TMemo component.
The lines you add are AnsiStrings and TMemo keeping them as an array (TStrings).
If you want that kind of control use TRichEdit component from Win32 tab.
