I have created a shapefile using the code below.  The addin tosses no errors and the shapefiles show up in Arccatalog with the geography viewable in the preview window.  However if you preview the table the attribute items are listed but no attributes populated.  If I exit the arcmap with the add in low and behold the attributes get populated.  This code has worked before using vb and arcobjects from withing arcmap converting it to a ARCGIS addin now using vb.net.  any suggestions
