I want to show a variable value in a text field.
The value of the variable is empty at the beginning. It will be shanged through the press on a button. After pressing the button, the text field is not updated. It will be updated, after rejoining the dialog. For any help thanks in advance.

Simply make the text field subscribe to the Event :ActionData with attribute Text
Add the name of the custom action to the ActionText table and provide a template like:  where  will be replaced with your message.
In your custom action when you get the value if your using installscript use MsiProcessMessage with the
INSTALLMESSAGE_ACTIONDATA message type. You would format the message simillar to how you write to the windows installer log file.
That should give you the results your looking for.
