hi, recently i meet one issue...

in my installscript project, i need billboard to show our product, but i can only show billboard in background mode.
for example, ENABLE(BACKGROUND);

could i show billboard on setup progress dialog???

or is there any solution? i can create a custom dialog, but how to retrieve the file copy status from my custom dialog, and then send status to progress bar inside custom dialog??

thanks so much..........

No, I don't think that's possible in InstallScript (unless you want to code it yourself).

Thank you Stefan,

perhaps i need code it myself.

I know that i can write a DLL which implement a dialog with a custom control like billboard and a progress bar control to show the status of copyfile. and then call this dialog in my setup.rul script.

I mean i want to hide status progress dialog, and use this DLL's dialog, could you think it is feasible?

i can invoke it by using MYDLL.ShowMyBillboardDialog(), but i don't know how to send status of copyfile to it.

maybe this is a difficult issue. Could you give me any suggestion or example link?

Thank you again smile.gif tongue.gif
