Is there any way to associate a string to a dialog box where the end user changes its information?

For example, I imported an xml file and noticed that installshield creates several strings, I'm trying to somehow associate one of these strings to a dialog for the end user to fill in with a different value.

InstallShield 2021 R1

Hello,

Thank you for your support. I read the documentation, I believe that you might have to use some Windows Installer property, when the installation starts the dialog is displayed but it is not possible to change the String, it is not possible to change the value by filling in with other information during the dialog, I am sending images.
