Update XML File on SQLServerSelectLogin dialog screen

Hi folks... I've spent a full day going through the forum but am unable to come to a conclusion.

I am a C# developer and have taken over the development of a project.
The project was bundled up by the previous developer using InstallShield but this my first encounter with it.

I will have to do some serious reading up but at the minute the project is ready to be installed on some client machines for beta testing and I have a showstopper basically which is preventing me from preparing the application for release.

There appears to be code in place in the installscript for what I need to do but I do not know if it is correct or needs tweaking.

Basically the task at hand is to :

1) Allow the user to select an SQL Server instance from the dropdown on the SQL Dialog Window.. this works fine and the connection is tested as successful or not successfull.

2) If successful, I want my 'ApplicationConfiguration.xml' file to have a connection string added for the server they selected in the dropdown ... or... amend a 'base' connection string in the xml file.... whichever is easiest.

I will attach the current code below.. I notice there is a 'ChangeXML.exe' file ... which I dont have in my project... as mentioned above Im completely new to this but hopefully the attached code will speak for itself.

Hopefully this code may also help someone else as I seen some similar issues througout the forum:)

Many Thanks

...but still no luck... can anyone alter my setup.rul code in the post to show how to alter the XML file?

changes

If I have the changes in my installscript, does the xml file need updated?

I need to update the remote SQL connections string in my sample xml file below:


-
-
-
Data Source="USER_SERVER";Initial Catalog=XXXXX;User ID=[USER_ID];Password="USER_PASSWORD"
Data Source=127.0.0.1;Initial Catalog=XXXXX;User ID=xxxxxxx;Password=xxxxxxx
Data Source=127.0.0.1;Initial Catalog=XXXXX;User ID=xxxxxxx;Password=xxxxxxx

function number OnSQLServerInitialize( nBtn )

Re: Update XML File on SQLServerSelectLogin dialog screen

Please take a look at my other post that I made in regards to how to update xml config file.

I believe what you are trying to achieve is pretty simple. All you need to do is call the method to update xml once you have all parameters, perhaps at the end of OnSQLLogin().

Let me know if you have any questions.
