Adding text to a richtext box and keeping vertical scroll bar at the bottom

P: n/a
Jon
If I add text to a rich text box, when there's too much to display, the vertical scroll bar stays at
the top. I'd like it to be at the bottom, so I can see the last item of text added. How do I do
this?

richTextBox1.Text += DateTime.Now.ToString() + Environment.NewLine;
richTextBox1.SelectionStart = richTextBox1.Text.Length;
richTextBox1.ScrollToCaret();
