View Full Version : dialog inheritance?

07-25-2002, 01:49 PM
Is there anyway to have IS 704 dialogs inherit attributes from a base dialog (I think not, just asking!)?

For example, I want a basic dialog which some other dialogs will be based on. In the future, I might want to add a bitmap to the basic dialog. I would like all the other dialogs which are based on this "basic" dialog to automatically display the bitmap too.

As I understand it, IS 704 only lets you export a dialog. You then import this dialog, rename it, and add controls. There is no inheritance. This would be a great feature I think.

I think there's currently nothing built-in to address this; you can cast your vote for feature requests here: http://www.installshield.com/feedback/forms/feedback.asp.
