Add DropDown at Runtime Visual Studio Shared AddIn

A

Hi

I have created a shared add in for Excel using Visual Studio.NET 1.1.
Please note I am NOT using Visual Studio Tools for Office. I am trying
to add a combo box to the active worksheet at runtime.
I am not able to figure out what code to do so. The following
approaches DONT work

ActiveSheet.OLEObjects.Add(ClassType:="Forms.ComboBox.1", Link:=False,
_
DisplayAsIcon:=False, Left:=65.25, Top:=40.5, Width:=72,
Height:=18)

ActiveSheet.DropDowns.Add()
From within the code the OLEObjects and DropDowns class dont have the
Add method. I can use the Add method from VBA but not from VS.NET. Is
it even possible to do this in VS.NET ?

Thanks

Replying to my own post here. But if any of you guys are trying to do
something similiar here is the working code

string []vaProducts={"Water", "Oil", "Chemicals", "Gas"};
Worksheet xlwsSheet;
xlwsSheet = (Worksheet)_excel.ActiveWorkbook.ActiveSheet;
Range Target;
Target = xlwsSheet.get_Range("A9","A9");
Excel.DropDowns xlDropDowns;
Excel.DropDown xlDropDown;
xlDropDowns = ((Excel.DropDowns)(xlwsSheet.DropDowns(Missing.Value)));
xlDropDown=xlDropDowns.Add((double)Target.Left,(double)Target.Top,(double)Target.Width,(double)Target.Height,true);
for (int i=0;i<vaProducts.Length; i++)
{
xlDropDown.AddItem(vaProducts,i);
}
