Question:
How do I position the cursor (caret) in an edit or similar type
control?


Answer:
You can use the Delphi SelStart() and SelectLength() methods.

Example:

procedure TForm1.Button1Click(Sender: TObject);
begin
  Edit1.SetFocus;
 {Move the caret to the second character}
  Edit1.SelStart := 2;
 {Do not select any text}
  Edit1.SelLength := 0;
end;
