Multiple line edit box?

Feb 8, 2011 at 12:15 PM


Sorry if this is a wrong place to such question.

I woud like to add a user-defined control to show in read-only mode a text containg multiple lines.
Vertical scroll bar ie required, horizontal one is a plus.

The InstallerEditor (I use the version 1.10) allows me to entry a multiple line text, where the lines are automaticaly separated by the 

But after linking my installation package I see all the text in one line in the edit box. There are no scrollbars.

In turn, the label control allows having multiple lines, but of course has no scrollbars.

Is there a way to show a long text with scrolling on the installer main dialog?

You have two options.

  1. Create a feature request. Hope someone implements it or implement it yourself.
  2. Try HtmlInstaller in 2.0 beta. That has a completely dynamic HTML layout that supports all that you would ever need.
