your saying that you want a "horizontal" listbox which separates its values by commas?

check this out....i experimented with the listbox and it looks like it works - paste this in a project

(im sure you can just manually add the commas)

Public Class Form2
    Inherits System.Windows.Forms.Form

#Region " Windows Form Designer generated code "

    Public Sub New()
        MyBase.New()

        'This call is required by the Windows Form Designer.
        InitializeComponent()

        'Add any initialization after the InitializeComponent() call

    End Sub

    'Form overrides dispose to clean up the component list.
    Protected Overloads Overrides Sub Dispose(ByVal disposing As Boolean)
        If disposing Then
            If Not (components Is Nothing) Then
                components.Dispose()
            End If
        End If
        MyBase.Dispose(disposing)
    End Sub

    'Required by the Windows Form Designer
    Private components As System.ComponentModel.IContainer

    'NOTE: The following procedure is required by the Windows Form Designer
    'It can be modified using the Windows Form Designer.  
    'Do not modify it using the code editor.
    Friend WithEvents ListBox1 As System.Windows.Forms.ListBox
    <System.Diagnostics.DebuggerStepThrough()> Private Sub InitializeComponent()
        Me.ListBox1 = New System.Windows.Forms.ListBox
        Me.SuspendLayout()
        '
        'ListBox1
        '
        Me.ListBox1.HorizontalScrollbar = True
        Me.ListBox1.Items.AddRange(New Object() {"one", "two", "three", "four", "five", "six"})
        Me.ListBox1.Location = New System.Drawing.Point(72, 17)
        Me.ListBox1.MultiColumn = True
        Me.ListBox1.Name = "ListBox1"
        Me.ListBox1.ScrollAlwaysVisible = True
        Me.ListBox1.Size = New System.Drawing.Size(552, 43)
        Me.ListBox1.TabIndex = 5
        '
        'Form2
        '
        Me.AutoScaleBaseSize = New System.Drawing.Size(5, 13)
        Me.ClientSize = New System.Drawing.Size(696, 77)
        Me.Controls.Add(Me.ListBox1)
        Me.Name = "Form2"
        Me.Text = "Form2"
        Me.ResumeLayout(False)

    End Sub

#End Region

End Class
