The "HtmlDirTable" Command

This command is used to add a file listing to the HTML report (at the location you organise). It would typically be used to list files that may be installed by the MSI by means other than the MSI "File" table table, for example you may be zipping files, adding the zip and extracting these at install time.

The command unlike nearly every other command must only be used while the html report is being generated (see the example to see one way of scheduling it). It takes these parameters:

EXAMPLE


<p>This command must only be used while the HTML report is being generated
so you will need to "<$schedule>" it.
The HTML report has many hooks which allow you to add information before or
after sections of the doco.

  <$HtmlDirTable "c:\tmp\a*.*;" Title="a*.*" DirRoot="c:\tmp\" NoneOk="Y" TT="Contents of fred.ear" EXLIST="TEST" Verify="Y">
  <$HtmlDirTable "c:\tmp\b*.*;" Title="b*.*" DirRoot="c:\tmp\" NoneOk="Y" TT="Contents of fred.ear" EXLIST="TEST" Verify="Y">
