I am using a drop down list box. This drop down list box
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.
