Re: Input validations for installers

If you don't want to accept blank input, you may want to compare the IA result variable with the $NULL$ value, and in case this was what the end user entered send them back to the previous panel.

Re: Input validations for installers

In the Pre-Install task, right after your Input Panel, you should use a Display Message, with the following Rule: Check IA variable, your $USER_INPUT_IA_VARIABLE$ equals $NULL$ then display a meaningful message to the end user and return to the previous panel (i.e. the one asking for the input).

Re: Input validations for installers

Only a Custom Code panel will allow the desired behavior. In what I was offering, the user couldn't by pass your panel unless they entered a non-null value.

Re: Input validations for installers

1) You may add a Display Message Panel (To show the error)
2) Add a rule to the panel Compare InstallAnywhere variable
($USER_INPUT_RESULTS$ equals $NULL$ ) where $USER_INPUT_RESULTS$ is Results Variable of the corresponding field that you want to validate
