Missing DropDown button?

I have tried to get a simple dropdown-button i my Outlook addon but I can't find a way to generate it.

What I am looking for is a button with a down-arrow on the right that a user can click on. The user can click on the button and then a default action is performed. But if the user clicks on the 'down' arrow, he gets a list of other options to choose from.

I would prefer it if I could link a TPopupMenu control to this button. That would be the simplest option.
With kind regards,

Hi Wim,

Unfortunately the Office Object Model doesn't allow to add all kinds of controls that we can see in Office toolbars. We can operate only with msoControlButton, msoControlEdit, msoControlDropdown, msoControlComboBox and msoControlPopup control types.
