ListBox tooltips?

The fact:
I have to write big text lines in a ListBox.
The problem:
I can´t  view the entire text, when i select a specific line.
Is there anyway to view the entire text...tooltip?, horizontal scroll?

thanx in advance....

you can do both a horizontal scroll OR a tooltip.. your choice. (by the way, no question should ever be less than 50 points)

For a tooltip,

private sub list1_click()
  if list1.listindex > -1 then
    list1.tooltiptext = list1.list(list1.listindex)
  else
    list1.tooltiptext = vbNullString
  end if
end sub

or, for a horizontal scroll:

use this sendmessage

SendMessageLong(m_lst.hwnd, LB_SETHORIZONTALEXTENT, sWidth, 0)

Where sWidth = the width you want in Pixels (not twips)
and   LB_SETHORIZONTALEXTENT = &H194
and   m_lst is the listbox
