      Label lblCommon =  new Label("Text Here");
      Panel pTop = new Panel();
      Button bEnter = new Button("Enter");
      TextField txtChat      = new TextField(20);
      List lst = new List(4, false);
      public void init() {
            class BL implements ActionListener {
                  public void actionPerformed(ActionEvent e){
            BL a = new BL();
          setLayout(new BorderLayout());
          add(pTop,BorderLayout.NORTH) ;
          add(lst,  BorderLayout.CENTER);

what about "lst.getItemCount()-1" instead of "lst.getItemCount()" ?
