View Full Version : ProgressBar example is missing

06-18-2004, 04:25 AM
Hi all,

I cannot find the ProgressBar custimzing example in Universal Installer Help Library. I am using the Installer X for windows BTW.

Who can post the following four files onto this site?

Thanks in advance and wish you a happy weekend.

The help article you read is obsolete! I reported the problem.

The best way to create a custom progress renderer with InstallShield X is with the Custom Dialog Editor. You can view the default one called Progress in the Cancel Frame. You can modify that one or create a new one.

If you choose to create a new one, be sure to change the "User Interface" property of the Install Action in your sequence to reference your new Dialog.

Hi Mike,

There is no code reference in Cancel-Progress dialog.

I need to perform some db operations during the installation thus need to control the value of progress bar.
I try the following code but it does nothing.

ISProgressBar p = (ISProgressBar) arg0.getISPanel().getControl("Progress");
p.setProgress (XX);

There must be some way of controling the progress bar but how?

Those JAVA files were inadvertently omitted from the Samples directory (will be included in SP1).

A zip file of those files are attached. Unizp them to your <Universal Home Directory>/Samples directory.

Sorry for the confusion!

Dear Marlo,

I tested these programs according to the Universal Help Document.

The compilation of four java files is OK. The add-in manager works fine. I can also add a wait action in post installation. But when it comes to the properties of the wait event, I cannot set the User Interface to the StandardProgressRenderer because it doesn't show up in the selection list. What shall I do next?

After adding the Wait action to the Sequences view, click the ellipsis in the "User Interface" property. Click "Select" from the dialog box, and a list of available dialogs opens. For the StandardProgressRenderer, select "Progress", then click OK.

Hope that helps!
