Default Scrollbars on listbox

Hi guys

I have a multi-column listbox.
It has four columns.
The last column has a lengthly description so naturally I'd like to create a horizontal scrollbar so that the user can scroll across and read the description.

However, I don't seem to be able to add a scrollbar to a listbox.
Has anyone done this before?

Many thanks for your help

Ciaran

Hi

But if you search google for +vb6 +listbox +scrollbar +horizontal
you will find more examples and solutions.

Hi tbiers

Found a workaround, I just increased the last column width so that the total column widths are greater than the width of the listbox.

Cheers for the replies
