Having Trouble Getting Billboards To Show Up

I'm using a basic MSI project, and I've followed the Displaying Billboards on a Modeless Dialog tutorial, yet I can't get my images to show up.

Dialog Table
Dialog - SetupProgress
HCentering - 50
VCentering - 50
Width - 374
Height - 298
Atrributes 5

Control Table
Dialog - SetupProgress
Control - Billboard1
Type - Billboard
X - 4
Y- 1
Width - 367
Height - 226
Attributes - 1

Billboard Table
Billboard - Billboard1
Feature - NewFeature1
Action - InstallFiles
Ordering - 1

BBControl
Billboard - Billboard1
BBControl - BB1
Type - Bitmap
X - 0
Y - 0
Width - 370
Height - 226
Attributes - 3

EventMapping Table
Dialog - SetupProgress
Control - Billboard
Event - SetProgress
Attribute - Progress

I've defined 4 Bitmaps under User Interface/Billboards/Images, but none of these seem to show up.

Thanks for any help :)

Re: Having Trouble Getting Billboards To Show Up

OK is:

Dialog Table
Dialog - SetupProgress
HCentering - 50
VCentering - 50
Width - 374
Height - 298
Atrributes 5

Control Table
Dialog - SetupProgress
Control - Billboard1
Type - Billboard
X - 4
Y- 1
Width - 367
Height - 226
Attributes - 1

Try to add one Billboard for each Bitmap to the Billboard Table
e.g.
Billboard Table

Billboard - Billboard1
Feature - NewFeature1
Action - InstallFiles
Ordering - 1

Billboard Table
Billboard - Billboard2
Feature - NewFeature1
Action - InstallFiles
Ordering - 1
...

In the binary Table Add your Billboard bitmaps:
Billboard1 [Binary Data] \theme\bbrd1.bmp
Billboard2 [Binary Data] \theme\bbrd2.bmp
Billboard3 [Binary Data] \theme\bbrd3.bmp
Billboard4 [Binary Data] \theme\bbrd4.bmp



Add than in the BBControlTable (change the sizes):
Billboard1 Bitmap1 Bitmap 0 0 225 225 3 Billboard1
Billboard1 Text1 Text 5 230 220 30 3 {&MSSansBold8}Text1

Billboard2 Bitmap2 Bitmap 0 0 225 225 3 Billboard2
Billboard2 Text2 Text 5 230 220 30 3 {&MSSansBold8}Text2

...

EventMapping Table:
SetupProgress Billboard1 SetProgress Progress

Hope that will help.
