UISAMPLE_ADD_MSG_TO_BOTTOM_BAR

Please see the "options for commands" section of this manual for general information about the use of macros for configuration.

If this macro has a value of "Y" (the default) then MAKEMSI will add text to the lines at the bottom of dialogs using these options:

   #define?  UISAMPLE_BLINE_TEXT           MakeMsi by Dennis Bareis
   #define?  UISAMPLE_BLINE_TEXT_INDENT    2          ;;Tiny bit in
   #define?  UISAMPLE_BLINE_TEXT_HEIGHT    10
   #define?  UISAMPLE_BLINE_TEXT_STYLE     0
   #ifdef    UISAMPLE_BLINE_SIMPLE
       ;--- You chose "simple" ----------------------------------------------
       #define?  UISAMPLE_BLINE_TEXT_FONT      Arial
       #define?  UISAMPLE_BLINE_TEXT_FONT_SIZE 8
       #define?  UISAMPLE_BLINE_TEXT_COLOR     &H7F7F7F   ;;BGR (only Microsoft... For the last 20 or so years every company on Earth has used RGB including MS...)
       #define?  UISAMPLE_BLINE_TEXT_WIDTH     102        ;;You'll need to do a bit of "Trial and Error" to get this right...
   #elseif
       ;--- I think this mechanism looks better -----------------------------
       #define?  UISAMPLE_BLINE_TEXT_FONT      Tahoma
       #define?  UISAMPLE_BLINE_TEXT_FONT_SIZE 8
       #define?  UISAMPLE_BLINE_TEXT_WIDTH     95         ;;You'll need to do a bit of "Trial and Error" to get this right...
   #endif

You can remove the text altogether or perhaps update it.

I do prefer you leave it as it is tells people that MAKEMSI was used to build the installer. I put a lot of work into MAKEMSI and provide it and its support for free, I don't ask much but if you want to change the message then please consider appending "(created by MAKEMSI)" or at least mentioning MAKEMSI (somewhere, even linking to my Web site helps). If you remove all mention of MAKEMSI I suggest that you should donate to MAKEMSI using the buttons in the navigation buttons on top of all pages in this document.

Example Dialog

The following dialog shows the bottom line text:
