The "DialogPreview" Command

This command allows you preview one or more dialogs to see how they would look at install time. Of course some properties the dialog may refer to may be unavailable and so some text may not be exactly as you'd expect.

It would allow you to make multiple changes to a dialog and see quickly see how they would look (without having to wait for the build to complete and then using "ORCA"" to view a single version of a dialog).

This command takes these parameters:

Examples

;--- Display a single dialog ---
<$DialogPreview "FilesInUse">

;--- Display all dialogs ---
<$DialogPreview>

;--- Display all dialogs with "Welcome" in their name ---
<$DialogPreview ".*Welcome.*">

The most likely regular expression codes you are likely to use are demonstrated above. The ".*" means match zero or more bytes of any character, as used above it will find "Welcome" whether it starts or ends the string or is imbedded.
