ListBox doesn't show grids

I have another mystery.  I have a listbox, and the users want to have grid lines between the records.  Here is a screenshot of the list box, and the properties box.  I have the Gridlines all set to Solid.  Why aren't I seeing them???

It's strange, but I've never figured out why the listbox control has GridLine properties, because values in those properties don't seem to accomplish anything.

If you need lines between the records of a listbox, consider creating a continuous subform and using it instead.

Same here.

My guess is that "GridlineStyle/GridlineWidth"
1. Mean something that we have yet to figure out...?
2. Meant something "in the old days", and is only still around for compatibility?
3. Are a cruel joke...?

Googling now for any insight...

sharpapproach ,
Go with fyed's solution if the listbox is for display purposes only.

But if it is needed to make multiple (possibly non-contiguous) selections, then you may be stuck here.

You could research using a 'GridView' VB control though...
But this will require an active x control to be installed on each machine, and will be a "challenge" to program things like multiple selections.
