Default Horizontal scrollbar in Listbox


I am using ASP.NET 2.0+C#. In my web page, I have a listbox. I have declared my list box as shown below:

<td align="center" valign="middle" style="width: 160px">

<asp:ListBox ID="lstPickAvillQueue" runat="server" Height="120px" Width="144px">


I want to provide a Horizontal scrollbar in the listbox, so that names which have more characters(250 characters) can be viewed properly. How to provide a horizontal scrollbar to the listbox?

Thank you

Thank you very much for the reply.

But, after selecting the longest item and adding it to a second list box, the first listbox is still showing the long empty space.,

Basically... when the thing loads its really weird because the listbox isn't as long as the div. (do you know what I mean? - try removing all the really long text items from the default list and replace them with really short text items).

I am trying to figure out how to force the listbox to be at least 120px in width. Keep in mind when I give it a fixed width of 120px that won't work because I will lose horizontal scrolling.

How to have a default width and then if a long name appears, use the horizontal scrollbar?

Please help.Thank you.
