how to add windows form user control to a COM addin

Shah Ali Haider asked:

Open original thread
I am a newbie to C# and COM addins for Office but i have a requirement for Word addin which shows a countdown timer when a word document is started and closes and saves the document when the countdown timer times finishes.

I have developed a user control which does the work of a countdown timer now i am trying to create a shared office addin which could display this timer every time a word document is loaded.

Can somebody guide me to the right direction on how to do it. As my layman sense didnt work when i tried to call the constructor of user control in connect.cs of office COM addin.
