        Globals.Factory.CreateSmartTag(
        "www.microsoft.com/Demo#DemoSmartTag",
        "Demonstration Smart Tag")

    ' Specify a term and an expression to recognize.
    smartTagDemo.Terms.Add("sale")
    smartTagDemo.Expressions.Add( _
        New System.Text.RegularExpressions.Regex( _
        "[I|i]ssue\s\d{5,6}"))

    displayAddress = Globals.Factory.CreateAction("To be replaced")

    ' Add the action to the smart tag.
    smartTagDemo.Actions = New Microsoft.Office.Tools.Excel.Action() { _
            displayAddress}

    ' Add the smart tag.

        displayAddress };

    // Add the smart tag. 
    this.VstoSmartTags.Add(smartTagDemo);
