Listbox Text Wrapping

 Listbox Text Wrapping

Also sent to microsoft.public.vb.controls

I want to upgrade a completed VBA-MSWord project which uses a ListBox to
display subsets of 1000 long sentences or short paragraphs (approx 200-1000
characters). This information is loaded from a textfile because I want
Macintosh platform functionality. Everything works very well except for the
user interface: users can only see the first 200 characters of the text in
the list, then they have to use the horizontal scrollbar. Kind of annoying
when you have to examine a number of paragraphs!

I have looked at using ListView control -- it offers text wrapping, but only
for icon and small icon views.

Does anyone have any ideas? I've used a few API calls, but I can't find
anything about ListBox text wraps.

A different control? A purchasable control? I'm willing to sacrifice my Mac
users for better Windows functionality. It's a MS tradition! :-)

Thanks for any and all help.
