View Full Version : Buttons disabled in the toolbar?

09-21-2012, 12:27 PM

Several buttons are visible, but disabled, in my InstallShield 2012 Spring toolbar. Basically everything to the right of the List View is disabled, so this would be:

Scrollable Text
Directory List
Directory Combo
Volume Cost List
Volume Select Combo
Masked Edit
Path Edit

Any idea why, and what I can do to use these? I'd specifically like to use the hyperlink control.

What kind of project are you creating? Some control types work only with particular project types (the ones you list, other than Icon, are supported only in Basic MSI projects, for example). There's a list of control types and the project types in the help topic Defining the End-User Interface > Working with Dialogs > Dialog Controls.

If you're creating an InstallScript project, please see the topic "Using an HTML Control on a Dialog" for a possible replacement.
