    Background:
    I want the user to load a file with informations and then fill the drop down list with this informations.

    Yes.  Override GetDDescription() in your TagData-extended class to have dynamic description elements in the A.M. of your tag.  Add a LONG type description and set a BaseContainer with the information elements in GetDDescription().  If the file doesn't change you can load it in Init() or check that the information was loaded in GetDDescription() before processing the drop-down list.

    BaseContainer listBC;  
      
    for (LONG index = 0L; index != numItems; ++index)  
    {  
      listBC.SetString(index, String("???"));  
    }  
      
    BaseContainer    bc =        GetCustomDataTypeDefault(DTYPE_LONG);  
    bc.SetString(DESC_NAME,                "List");  
    bc.SetContainer(DESC_CYCLE,        listBC);  
    if (!description->SetParameter(DescLevel(YOUR_ID_FOR_THIS_DESC, DTYPE_LONG, 0L), bc, descID))        return FALSE;
