View Full Version : Blue Gradient Background - InstallShield Express X

10-15-2004, 03:33 PM
I am using InstallShield Express x.
I want to have full screen blue gradient background during installation.

This is how I did it...
1. Created 1 pixel x 1 pixel dummy bitmap
2. Used above bitmap as billboard
3. Set duration 0
4. Set background color blue
5. Set background style as gradient

I am not sure if above method is right way of doing it or not.
Is there any straight forward way to add blue gradient background throughout installation.

Using bliiboards is the only way to get the Blue background. Most installations are going away from this look. There is more straight forward to get this look using an InstallScript project in InstallShield X Professional. However when using an MSI based project (as Express is) you need to use billboards to acheive this look.
