This information applies to Basic MSI projects.
The Dialogs view contains a Dialogs explorer. The Dialogs explorer contains two main folders: Themes and All Dialogs.
The Themes folder contains a list of all of the dialog themes that you can use for the dialogs in your project. A dialog theme is a predefined set of images that give your end-user dialogs a unified and distinctive look.
The All Dialogs folder contains a list of the dialogs in your project. Each dialog item in the Dialogs explorer contains a Behavior item, which enables you to configure the behavior that is associated with a dialog, and at least one language item, which displays the dialog in the Dialog Editor of the selected language. The Dialog Editor enables you to edit the layout for each language separately.
When you create a new Basic MSI project, InstallShield provides a series of default dialogs for the two User Interface sequences in which a Windows Installer package typically displays dialogs: the Installation sequence (which runs when the installation is launched in the default mode, for example, by double-clicking an .msi file)with separate dialogs depending on whether the package is being installed for the first time, reinstalled, or uninstalledand the Administration sequence (the list of actions that are executed when you launch the installation with the /a command-line option). (End-user dialogs are not usually displayed in the Advertisement sequence, which contains the list of actions that are executed when you launch the installation with the /j command-line option.)
Although you can create dialogs in a merge module project, you cannot add them to a sequence until you associate your module with an installation project. Then, all the dialogs included in your module are available to be included.
