Well..you could put it in a scrollable div, but I don't think you'd like the end result of that option (you'd have to scroll to drop it down)?  The usual dropdownlist has no support for a horizontal scrollbar, it would look too bulky if it had one.

     <div style="width:200px; overflow: scroll">
                  <asp:dropdownlist ... />
      </div>

--The best I can think of

Forcing scrollbars
The techniques used to “fix” the bug in question, can also be used for other purposes. With CSS, you can forcefully show or hide both vertical and horisontal scrollbars in both Mozilla Firefox and Internet Explorer.
Forcefully enabling scrollbars:

html {
overflow: scroll;
}

Forcefully disabling scrollbars:

html {
overflow: hidden;
}

Hiding the horizontal scrollbar in IE:

html {
overflow-x: hidden;
}

Hiding the vertical scrollbar in IE:

html {
overflow-y: hidden;
}

Forcing the horizontal scrollbar in IE:

html {
overflow-x: scroll;
}

Forcing the vertical scrollbar in IE:

html {
overflow-y: scroll;
}

Forcing the horizontal scrollbar in Mozilla:

html {
overflow: <del>moz</del>scrollbars-horizontal;
}

Forcing the vertical scrollbar in Mozilla:

html {
overflow: <del>moz</del>scrollbars-vertical;
}

What does it mean to be "Always On"?

Is your cloud always on? With an Always On cloud you won't have to worry about downtime for maintenance or software application code updates, ensuring that your bottom line isn't affected.
