View Full Version : how to create a custom dialog..

07-20-2004, 02:04 AM
I am new to Installshield X. I created a custom dialog with one textbox and one button. Can anyone throw some light on how i can retrieve the value provided by the user during executing the setup. Actually i want to use the value in my install script.

I would highly appreciate if some one can provide some help links / free tutorials. I went through the help, but it dosent provide any step-by-step approach.

thanks and regards,

First of all, you have to write a function, which handles the dialog. This is similar to any dialog in InstallShield X.

In this function you may retrieve the value of your textbox using the function CtrlGetText ().

For details see the attached script file.
