18.38 java.awt.List (JDK 1.0)

This class is a Component that graphically displays a list of strings. The list is scrollable if necessary. The constructor takes optional arguments that specify the number of visible rows in the list and whether selection of more than one item is allowed. The various instance methods allow strings to be added and removed from the List, and allow the selected item or items to be queried.
