[Tutor] Boa Constructor list control

I am just learning how to use Boa Constructor to make GUI apps, and am 
having some problem with understanding the list control.

The list control has a property called columns, but I cannot figure out 
how to add columns, and specify names for them.

When I click the column property a small window opens up with it's title 
set to col1 something with the word "Name" in a label on it. Subsequent 
clicks on the column properry of the list control just brings this 
little window up again.

I cannot change the text in the label of that small window to the name I 
want for a column, and I cannot figure out how to add more columns to 
the list control.

When the small column window is selected no properties show for it in 
the Inspector window.

Can anyone tell me how to use this control? I tried using the Boa 
Constructor help menu, and it led me to a very brief description of the 
list control, with no details on what it's properties were even.

Thanks, Ray Parrish
