I'm looking for a font available within the IDE which I can use in a listbox so that columns will line up with one another, based on a correct number of spaces being padded to the end of each column.  The problem with this approach is that different characters have diferent widths.

Anybody know a font I could use to solve this?  Or, does anybody know how some other way to line up a listBox items so that it will appear like a matrix?
