populating dynamically from the database with long text.
So each record is having more then 500 characters.

Unfortunatelly you can not add a horizontal scroll bar in the DropDownListBox.
You can try to write some javascript code and solve the problem by working with div elements

Here is some articles

dba I hear you..... but its not easy. So I suggest you do listbox when they click the item in listbox it populates a big box on right of Listbox....it will take up screen acerage but its good for user and they will like it.
