View Full Version : Corresponding function in Installshield X

Hi I am an Installshield developer 8 user and trying to switch to the Universal Installer. I could not find a corresponding methods in Universal Installer.

The scenario goes like this:
1 Setup popup a window asking user to choose which language the user will use.
2 Next the program will help user to check the necessary features in the feature dialog.

In developer 8 I use

ComponentSetData (MEDIA, "Demo DataBases\\Swedish", COMPONENT_FIELD_SELECTED, TRUE, "");

Is there any similar way of doing this in Universal Installer?

Thanks in advance.

hi BJBear

In Installshield universal you have to find the proper setup dialog from dialogs view , customize it by opening its swing events & layout & add dialog in sequences view in proper order.

Actually, a Feature dialog is automatically included in a Universal Installer project for the end user to select which features to install. And if you set up the available languages in the Releases/Distributions/Language Support view, the Language Selection dialog will automatically display at run time for the end user to select in which language to run the installation.

You can also customize these dialogs in the User Interface/Dialogs view Dialog Editor. But this is optional.
