InstallScript MSI

You can use the Controls toolbar in InstallShield to add controls to a dialog.

To add a control to a dialog:

1. In the View List under User Interface, click Dialogs.
2. In the Dialogs explorer, expand the All Dialogs folder, and then expand the dialog item that should have the new dialog control.
3. Click a language under the dialog item that you expanded. The Dialog Editor in the center pane shows the dialog in the selected language.
4. In the Controls toolbar, click the control that you want to add.
5. Draw a rectangle on the dialog in the location where you want the control to be displayed.
6. In the right pane, set the control’s properties.

After adding the control in the Dialog Editor, you need to use InstallScript to process the end user’s interaction with the control. To learn more, see Using InstallScript to Process Dialog Controls.

Note: For projects created in Microsoft Visual Studio, you can use the Toolbox to add dialog controls.
