Dialog Editor and Custom Dialogs

Tue Jul 28, 2015 8:48 am


I've got a question regarding a custom dialog.
Because its not possible to link a dialog in two stages (main install and repair) I created a copy of the dialog. Both should have the same controls and write the values to the registry.
The server simple edit has for a example a property called "SERVER_PROP". On both dialogs it has the same property - so its ok.

But I have also a checkbox with the property called "SSPI_PROP". Here it is not allowed to have the same property - on the second dialog the property is renamed to "SSPI_PROP_1".
Why is it possible to have the same property in simple edit but not in checkboxes?

Hello Andreas,

The design does not permit for two checkboxes to have the same property.

A possible workaround is to set two "Set installer property" Published Events on the first checkbox (SSPI_PROP_1) like this:
  • -Property: SSPI_PROP_2, Argument : [SSPI_PROP_1], Condition: SSPI_PROP_1
    -Property: SSPI_PROP_2, Argument : {}, Condition: not SSPI_PROP_1

If you have more questions, do not hesitate to ask.
