Scroll to the bottom of a text box control programmatically

/ Published in: C#
Save to your folder(s)

This technique is useful for when you are displaying text back to the user in a GUI and want the most recent text to be displayed at the bottom of the text control, but you want that information to be visible.

Another nice function that works well if you aren’t moving up and down in the text box is the textbox.AppendText function. It will add the text to the bottom and keep the textbox from going to the top. (Thanks to Charlie Mann for that one.)

Copy this code and paste it in your HTML
  1. // Scroll to end of text box
  2. aTextBox.SelectionStart = aTextBox.TextLength;
  3. aTextBox.ScrollToCaret();
