Using the New Dialog Wizard to Add a New Custom Dialog to an InstallScript or InstallScript MSI Project

InstallShield 2019

Project • This information applies to the following project types:

InstallScript MSI

To add a new custom dialog to your project:

1. In the View List under User Interface, click Dialogs.
2. In the Dialogs explorer, right-click All Dialogs, and click New Dialog. The New Dialog Wizard opens.
3. Follow the wizard panels to create the new dialog. In the Dialog Template panel, select the NewScriptBasedDialog template or the NewSkinnableDialog template.

The NewScriptBasedDialog and NewSkinnableDialog templates include a hidden control that has a Control Identifier value of 2. To enable end users to cancel the installation by clicking the close button in the upper-right corner of the InstallScript dialog, the dialog must have a button control whose Control Identifier property is set to this value. The Blank Dialog template does not include this control. For more information, see Using InstallScript to Implement Custom Dialogs.

Once you have added a new custom dialog to your project, you can add dialog controls.
