I'm using Installshield Professional - Windows INstaller Edition.

I've added 3 dialogs and have a number of edit fields I want to require the user to complete. Can someone direct me to some documentation or possibly provide an example of how to accomplish this? I've looked at a few dialogs and can't seem to figure out how it's being accomplished.

Your help is much appreciated!

I don't know anything about Windows Installer but, maybe you could simply check that the edit field has something in it. For instance, if the string is not empty then continue. If it is empty then pop a message box to inform the user to enter something.

Hope this helps...

I would recommend that you post this to the InstallShield Developer 7 forum.

That forum is monitored and looked at by users who are more familiar with the Windows Installer technology.

This forum is primarily for the Professional version 6.x product line specifically.

My apologies for any inconvenience.
