I want to perform some custom actions during repair.
After which standard action  in execute sequence can i retrieve properties such as 'ProgressType0' or '_IsMaintenance'

Actually if u see the events in next button on the dialogs such as Maintenance Type propertry _IsMaintenaceType is used immediately.
However if i place a condition similar to the one they have used such as say '_IsMaintenanceType = "Reinstall" ' , the event i wanted to get executed sucha s Newdialog or a custom action does not get executed.

Remember that these properties like _IsMaintenance are private properties (because they include lower case letters). This means that their value is lost when setup moves from the user interface sequence to the execute sequence.

hey guys...

Give a condition for the custom action as
The CA will be called during repair action. (but take care while modify also CA will run)
