Setting Text control value
Posted 11 June 2001 - 21:42
I call MsiSetProperty(), passing the text control "Property" value as the property. When I display the dialog (via MsiDoAction), the text control still has the "initial" values set up when I created the dialog box. Am I going about this the wrong way, or is this beyond the capabilities of the product?

1. If dialog 'One' uses NewDialog to call 'One' the dialog is not updated with new values. Many people get around this by using an alternate dialog 'OneA' which is otherwise identical to 'One'
2. There is no property on text controls. This is an Installshield bug. If you want to substitute text define the text of the control as "[MyProperty]"
I do not know if these are your problems or not. You certainly can change text values.
