I want to create a drop down list that shows max 10 no. of item and more than 10, it should use horizontal scroll to move up and down.

I am working in vs2005 with c#.
Please tell me if it is possible by any property, css and any other way.

private void DisplayHScroll()
   // Make no partial items are displayed vertically.
   listBox1.IntegralHeight = true;

   // Add items that are wide to the ListBox.
   for (int x = 0; x < 10; x++)
      listBox1.Items.Add("Item  " + x.ToString() + " is a very large value that requires scroll bars");

   // Display a horizontal scroll bar.
   listBox1.HorizontalScrollbar = true;

   // Create a Graphics object to use when determining the size of the largest item in the ListBox.
   Graphics g = listBox1.CreateGraphics();

   // Determine the size for HorizontalExtent using the MeasureString method using the last item in the list.
   int hzSize = (int) g.MeasureString(listBox1.Items[listBox1.Items.Count -1].ToString(),listBox1.Font).Width;
   // Set the HorizontalExtent property.
   listBox1.HorizontalExtent = hzSize;
