How to hook a Window Form within Microsft Excel from VBA?

enter image description here

I’m trying to hook a Window Form within Microsoft Excel itself like on the attached picture (This is an Addin called Kutools).
It is supposed to:

  1. Fit on the right side of the Row number
  2. Be Just below the name box
  3. Be resizable and the window is resizable with it as well
  4. Be collapsible or Expandable (like on the image)

I prefer to use the internal VBA of Excel to build and hook it as much as possible. But if I have to use an external Editor (Visual Studio C# or VB. Net …) I’m willing to follow the instruction.

I searched all over the web but couldn’t find a way to do this. I definitely appreciate your kind assistance on this.

Thanks for your help, I’m open to any suggestion!

How to&Answers:

If I am not mistaken, you are trying to create a custom task pane for Excel (add-in). If so, then this link might help you, but you need to build it with Visual studio using Office development tools:
