Adding predefined list to site dynamically using SPListTemplateType

Many times we need to add predefined lists like Tasks List, WorkflowHistory List to our site using Code.

So here is the way we can accomplish this.

objClientsWeb.AllowUnsafeUpdates = true;

objClientsWeb.Lists.Add ( "{ListName}", "{Listdiscription}" ,SPListTemplateType.Tasks);

objClientsWeb.Lists.Add ( "{ListName}", "{Listdiscription}" ,SPListTemplateType.WorkflowHistory);

objClientsWeb.AllowUnsafeUpdates = false;

That's it your job is done.

Just Check user is having sufficient rights to add list to site.
