How do you get a horizontal scroll bar to show up in the list box of a combo box. I send a CB_SETHORIZONTALEXTENT, which does change the extent, but still no scroll bar appears. Do I need to set the style of the list box. If so, how?

The feature of combobox horisontal scrolling
works only under Windows95.

It is unknown to Win16.
Is not supported by Windows NT.

The only portable way of doing it is subclassing...
Have a nice day,
