Hi,

I have a newbie question.
I need to implement a complicated dialog box in C++ with resource script file and finally load it from installscript.

Any ideas how it is done?

Thanks,
Liora

I would begin by looking at the Help for DLL functions, calling. This goes through some of the requirements, prototyping, setting your def file, and how to use the dll.

I also came across this article on code project: http://www.codeproject.com/Articles/162933/Programming-User-Interface-in-InstallScript

Maybe this will help as well.

Dan, great article. Thanks.
Still didn't figure out how to change the dialog background color using external DLL.

I have a StaticProc which handles WM_CTLCOLORSTATIC message. I would like all the other messages to be processed by the InstallShield dialog function. How do I return the control

from the StaticProc (external C++ DLL) to the Dialog Function in InstallShield?

Thanks,
