New Dialog

Postby mreith » Sun Jul 09, 2006 12:01 pm

I would like to create a new dialog (not just a rehash/theme of an existing dialog). Is this possible to do as a plug-in? If so, is there an example of doing this?

Thanks

Mike

Hi,

There is no need to use plug-ins to create custom dialogs. You can just start with an empty dialog in the dialog editor and insert the controls you need. Then, you can double-click the buttons, text fields, and so on, to configure the actions they perform (such as going to the next dialog, capturing entered text into MSIcode script variables).

You can also of course show a custom dialog from a plug-in, but this will be an unnecessarily difficult approach for the simple task at hand. The dialog editor puts you in full control of your setup user interface with absolutely no manual coding effort.

So for a Memo or a RichEdit, how do I fill in the text or lines property at runtime? I would like to accomplish this from outside of the dialog.

Thanks,

Mike
