You could make a comboBox (if using winForms) and then get the PickList and populate the comboBox Items.


reference Act.UI.PickLists.dll (under install path for Act)


            Act.Framework.PickLists.PickList pickList = actFwk.PickLists.GetPickListByName("your picklist name");

            foreach (Act.Framework.PickLists.PickListItem item in pickList.Items)


Is that what you are looking for? Hope that helps.
