I want to show progress of the installation in the silent mode for installscript project. I searched a lot and could not find anything for installscript project. It would be great If anybody could help.
Thanks in advance!

It sounds like you're looking for a rough equivalent to Windows Installer's basic UI mode. This isn't directly available, as the /s silent parameter will remove all of InstallScript's UI. Perhaps you could add a custom /z parameter response which will suppress all of your standard dialogs (via custom code), and only show the status dialog...

But then I'm also using in-build dialogs. Is there a way so that these ones gets handled automatically as if we are in the silent mode?

You would probably have to add all the events and condition the dialogs against your /z CMDLINE parameter, so no it's not automatic at all. The automatic one is under /s which would suppress all InstallScript dialogs including the status dialog.

I copied scripts all in-built dialogs that I'm using and implemented mmy own silent mode. But I found out that "SilentReadData" is not working in this mode. Do you have any alternative for this?

SilentReadData needs to read from a response file, which will be unavailable unless the /s parameter is used. You could implement the same general idea (store something to a file and read it back) yourself, but unless you use the built-in parameter you won't get to use the built-in support.
