    Default hor. scroll in xdialog list box

    What am I missing? I'm trying to get a list box to scroll horizontally because the width of some lines of text is longer than the width of the xdialog box. Here's the way I'm defining the list box but it isn't working:

    [%H%.120,15chc^#clist]

    "clist" is a crlf list of choices.

    listboxes don't support horizontal scroll.

    you will have to make the listbox wide enough to display all of the data.

    According to the Help file, the H directive applies to list boxes.

    H Directive -- Allows horizontal scrolling in a list box.

    i think the help is wrong. it applies to a multi-line text box.

    And here it is March 31st of 2011....and the help is still incorrect. Found this thread after having the same frustration Cal must have encountered in trying to get a horizontal scroll bar into a list box! A real limitation this is.... :(
