hi there,

i'm used to coding with windows IDEs where one can handle events such as onclick and onmouseover etc.  I seem to be having trouble getting installshield to respond to button clickings.  What I'm trying to do is trigger an action after I click a button (ie update a text area).  Has anyone had any luck trying this?  I would prefer not to use installscript, but will consider it if it would help my situation (as opposed to making it worse).  Thanks in advance.

If you want to execute any action after clicking on any MSI dialog button, then use Events. Select a dialog in the Dialogs view, select Behavior, select a button, select the Events tab and add to it something like this:
Event         DoAction
Argument    [YourCustomAction]
Condition     1

This condition means to execute always, you can use another condition like PROP1<>"Yes".

Good luck,
