Hello All,


  I am new to install shield and facing some basic issues, Please help me for the following


1. sdLoadString :- What is nID, where i can location the different value ? can i use my custom string instead of SdLoad String in dialog box

i.e.  Actual SdString is :- szMsg = SdLoadString( IDS_IFX_STATUSEX_STATICTEXT_UPDATEUI );



    Custom string :-

szMsg = "The Install Shield wizard is updating "+IFX_INSTALLED_VERSION+" of "+IFX_PRODUCT_NAME+" installer to version "+IFX_PRODUCT_VERSION+" "
