Two Newb Questions

First:

How do I get my install to skip the dialog where it asks for a company name and user name, in an InstallScript MSI. I know how to do it with the 'interview' questions, but cant find the property independently.

Second,

On a custom dialog box, I'd like to change the text color for a textbox when a pushbutton is pushed. Is this possible?

Re: Two Newb Questions

I think you just comment out the script (Dlg_SdRegisterUserSmiley Happy in OnFirstUIBefore and then modify the GO TO statements before and after it to the right places.

As far as changing the colors, well, the built in dialog editor for InstallShield is weak and leaves a lot to be desired. You might look into InstallDialog (moonsea.com?). It's a 3rd party editor.

Is there a general way inwhich to use control actions to set properties of objects on the dialog?

For example, can a click a pushbutton, in order to toggle a textbox between being visible and not? (something like textboxname.visible = false)?

Thanks
