List

Name

List

[Graphic: Figure from the text]

Description

The List is a Component that provides a scrollable list of choices to select from. A List can be in one of two modes: single selection mode, in which only one item may be selected at a time; and multiple selection mode, in which several items may be selected at one time. A list does not necessarily display all of the choices at one time; one of the constructors lets you specify the number of choices to display simultaneously. Although the changes in 1.1 are extensive, almost all of them can be boiled down to (1) using the 1.1 event model, and (2) standardizing method names (e.g. set/get pairs).
