String datelist[] = new String[30];

SimpleDateFormat dtFormat = new SimpleDateFormat("dd.MM.yyyy");

ISimpleTypeModifiable myType=wdThis.wdGetAPI().getContext().getModifiableTypeOf("days");

// ArrayList ldate = new ArrayList();

for (int i = 0; i < 31; ++i) {

datelist<i> = dtFormat.format(new java.util.Date());

IModifiableSimpleValueSet values=myType.getSVServices().getModifiableSimpleValueSet();

values.put("i", "datelist<i>");

    What is a type of "days" attribute?

    See comments in the following code and use one form for "string" and other one for "date" types:

    final Calendar calendar = Calendar.getInstance
    calendar.setTimeInMillis( System.currentTimeInMillis() ); 
    final SimpleDateFormat dtFormat = new SimpleDateFormat("dd.MM.yyyy");
    final ISimpleTypeModifiable myType=wdContext()
    final IModifiableSimpleValueSet values = myType
    /* 30 days from now */
    for (int i = 0; i < 31; ++i) 
      final java.sql.Date date = 
        new java.sql.Date( calendar.getTimeInMillis() );
      final String dateStr = dtFormat.format( date );
      /* if type is <b>string</b> */
      values.put( dateStr, dateStr );
      /* else if type is <b>date</b> */
      values.put( date, dateStr ); 
      calendar.add( Calendar.DATE, 1 );
