I have googled everywhere and it seems there are threads that actually know what they're talking about but I cannot get the code they use to work for mine. Can anyone please give me the code to make the TextArea's scrollbar go to the bottom? Thanks :)

m.vPosition = m.maxVPosition;

m is the instance name of the textArea component

Instead of using a textArea, I use a textBox and use the UI Scrollbar for the textfield. You can even design your own scrollbar and apply the following code:
scrollDown.OnPress = function(){
this.onEnterFrame = function(){
this._parent.TextBoxName.scroll += 1;
}
}
scrollDown.onRelease = function(){
delete this.onEnterFrame();
}
scrollUp.OnPress = function(){
this.onEnterFrame = function(){
this._parent.TextBoxName.scroll -= 1;
}
}
scrollUp.onRelease = function(){
delete this.onEnterFrame();
}
