Creating A Drop Down

Hello

Im new to Maxscript and was wondering if you guys could help me out.
Basically i have to create a UI to do various things.
I need to create a drop down list and when an object is selected it creates it in max..
Been stuck on this for ages
This is what ive got so far:

try (destroydialog test_button) catch ()

rollout test_button "Reset Max"
(

button theButton "Reset Max"---Creates Button

on theButton pressed do---When pressing Button
resetMaxFile #noprompt---Resets Max File

dropdownlist scale_dd "Shape:" items:#("Box", "Plane", "Pyramid", "Cone")
on scale_dd selected i do
format "You selected '%'!\n" scale_dd.items[i]---???????????????
)
createDialog test_button 300 150




Ill be grateful for any help

Here you go, try this!
try (destroydialog test_button) catch ()

rollout test_button "Reset Max"
(
-- store the classes you want to make into an array
-- This can be added to 
local classItems =#(Box, Plane, Pyramid, Cone, Torus, Hedra, Capsule)
	
button theButton "Reset Max"---Creates Button

on theButton pressed do---When pressing Button
resetMaxFile #noprompt---Resets Max File

dropdownlist scale_dd "Shape:" items:(for i in classItems collect i as string)
-- call the constructor of the class item from the selected index of the dropdownlist
on scale_dd selected i do classItems[i]()

)
createDialog test_button 300 150
