Using Placeholders in Static Custom Dialog text

Hi all,
I am using InstallSheld 2014 and have a question please.

I have an InstallScript MSI project and created a custom dialog.
Added a static text field with value as below:
[INSTALLDIR]xyz\abc.
hoping [INSTALLDIR] will expand to the actual location. e.g. c:\program files\product\.

In the Basic MSI project [INSTALLDIR] expands appropriately to the actual install location, but not in the InstallScript MSI project where it gets displayed as is to [INSTALLDIR].
Is there anything special I need to do? Either in the dialog designer itself or the InstallScript .rul files?

How to expand property names or variables?

thanks,
Ash
