A problem with automating control of a Java* program with a GUI containing a java.awt.list is that the list items, which are in random order, can only be accessed by ordinal position. This is solved by replacing the java.awt.List class with a new java class, compliant to the java.awt.List interface, but internally implemented using a scrolling panel of java.awt.Button's.
