This question sort of adds to http://www.experts-exchange.com/Web/Web_Languages/HTML/Q_20960348.html

SeanPowell found a way to add a horizontal scroll bar with javascript.

However, I am loading my listbox from the results of a queried database using SQL in ASP.  I am able to load my current HTML listbox without a problem by sprinkling in ASP code but it appears that this horizontal scrolling list box loads its values using javascript.

I am not sure about using ASP code inside javascript.  I also am not sure if there is a way to query a database inside of javascript.  Or if there is a new solution to getting the horizontal scrollbar in a list box using HTML.  Or if I am just missing something.

Any thoughts?

you can use ASP in javascript if needed - it will all run on the server and the javascript will have the correct values by the time the browser tries to run it.

You are correct.  It is working fine now.  I should have given myself some time away and looked at it.  I assumed that the ASP and javascript mix was the problem because it was my first time doing it.  Thank you, you at least made me confident enough to examine the rest of my code.
