In my InstallScript project, I want to modify the SdFeatureTree dialog such that the description text control uses a vertical scroll. This is because I have large amounts of text to display for each feature's description. I go to "Other Windows Styles" and check WS_VSCROLL. When I run the project the vertical scroll bar appears, however, it is disabled. What else needs to be done in order to have the vertical scroll be enabled and work?

To follow up on this thread, I contacted IS tech support about this issue, and they believe it is a bug in Installshield. As a workaround, I found that I can replace the text box with an Edit field, and setting WS_VSCROLL gives you an enabled vertical scroll. So that works.
