Sorry if it's impolite to post this on both the InstallShield and InstallSite forums, but I'm desperate! blink.gif

I've seen messages of people trying to disable the Cancel button on the status dialogs(STATUSDLG, STATUSEX, etc.), so I know how to do that.

But my problem is I WANT the Cancel button and I want it to work. Right now when I click on the Cancel button, it changes the cursor to an hourglass and does nothing.

How do you catch the Cancel button?

I put the following code in OnFirstUIBefore to illustrate:

nCount = 0;
while ( nCount < 100 )
SetStatusWindow( nCount, "Testing" );
nCount = nCount + 1;

Thanks for any help!!

The Cancel button on the status dialog only works during filke trabsfer. It doesn't work in cases where you manually update the status bar, like you are doing. This is a known limitation in InstallShield, and I'm not aware of any workaround or fix.

I was afraid of that. Thanks for confirming it for me!

So as an alternative, I've been trying to use the IS dialog control that is the status bar (10303). I've been able to show the dialog using EzDefineDialog, and get the Cancel button to work, but I have not been able to update the progress bar. mad.gif

Does anyone know the command to set the progress bar?

Many thanks again,
