1. API Declare

     Const LB_SETHORIZONTALEXTENT = &H194
     Private Declare Function SendMessage Lib "user32" Alias "SendMessageA" (ByVal hwnd As Long, ByVal wMsg As Long, ByVal wParam  As Long, lParam As Any) As Long

2. When you want add the scrollbar, add

        
   Call SendMessage(List1.hwnd, LB_SETHORIZONTALEXTENT, widthofScrollbar, ByVal 0&)
