horizontal scrollbar

Hello,
i´m trying to write a script that is usually much wider than my screen. imagine toolbar with let say 50 buttons in a row. maybe i´m wrong, but, it seems it´s not possible to have toolbar with horizontal scrollbar. so my question is: is it possible to "insert" toolbar into dotnet object? and if it is, how?
If someone knows the answer, please let me know.
Thanks to all of you in advance.

Thanx Marco for advise, however, i'm stuck and don't know how to do this. Please, is there any chance you could provide me with simple example that i can analyse and learn from it? thanx.

If you are using dotNET, then

If you are using dotNET, then a good option could be to create a flowLayoutPanel control and then add the buttons to it's Controls property, and let the flowLayoutPanel handle the scrollbars and GUI adjustments.

Yes, you guess correct

Yes, you guess correct, no horizontal scrollbar, Max designed to work in vertical scroll, but if you intend to do this by dotNet, keep in account that "inserted" controllers into dotNet object (buttons for example) they must be also dotNet objects (not Max rollout controls).
