User Input Panel based on fields in a properties file?

Hello all,
I am pretty new to InstallAnywhere and I am wondering how one may go about attempting this. I need to create a panel that prompts the user for different input based upon fields in a .properties file. For example:
build.properties:
User={administrative user}
Password=
Version={Version}

Based from this, I'd like a panel to be created that would have 3 fields that allowed user input: User, Password, and Version. If there is a value in the .properties file for a specific field, I'd like that to be the suggested value in the box in the panel.

I'd like this to be generic enough, that if i passed it a different .properties file with different values, those would be accepted and displayed.

Has anyone done something like this? Am I completely off base in trying to do something this way?

Thanks in advance.

Use the Properties file reader plugin to read in the properties file as InstallAnywhere variables.
Then create your panel using those variables.
