now i'm working on creating a somewhat silent mode where i bypass any UI screens and go straight to the progress bar.
the problem here is passing in some sort of property that i can use in the UI script to tell it to not show any command windows.
is there any way of sending information from the command line to the UI Sequence? i've already tried the obvious by passing a property but i've noticed that the property does not get populated in the UI sequence.
are there any tricks that i can try in order to tell the dialogs in the UI sequence not to show but still show the progress bar and the prompts for the next disk?

and then to a MessageBox ("PROPERTY1=" + PROPERTY1, INFORMATION) in OnFirstUIBefore to evaluate PROPERTY1 and it comes up blank.
am i doing something wrong?
i see PROPERTY1 being set in the log file so i know that it is being read in but it is not making it to the UI sequence.
