Sorry Lane,
I just missed out. Try this:
<?xml version="1.0" encoding="utf-8"?>
<s:Application xmlns:fx="" 
			   xmlns:mx="library://" minWidth="955" minHeight="600">
		<!-- Place non-visual elements (e.g., services, value objects) here -->
			import mx.collections.ArrayCollection;
			private var playersList:ArrayCollection = new ArrayCollection();
			private function button1_clickHandler(event:MouseEvent):void
				var s: String = "Player 1";
		<s:Button click="button1_clickHandler(event);" label="ADD"/>
		<s:List id="playerList" x="100" y="100" dataProvider="{playersList}" width="100" height="206" ></s:List>

Open in new window

Warm Regards
