The list box control displays a list of values or choices just like a combo box. However, with a list box, all of the list choices display on the screen at one time.
A nice thing about using a List Box is that a user is forced to choose from one of the List Box entries – there is no option here for typing in a value that doesn’t appear in the list.

Creating list boxes is nearly the same as creating combo boxes.
