Show an information panel¶
This custom action creates a dialog box displaying rich text to your end users. It is similar to the Show a Readme dialog custom action except that all variables found in the rich text can be optionally replaced by their values.
|Property Name||Data Type||Description|
|Caption||String||The title that appears on the dialog box or in the wizard's instruction panel.|
|EvalForVar||Boolean||Indicates whether the rich text should be scanned for variables before it is displayed. If true, all variables found will be replaced by their values.|
|NextCaption||String||Holds the text of the Next button or Continue button. You can insert your own text. Otherwise, leave it to #Next or #Continue resource strings.|
|Text||RichLines||The text that should be displayed in the text box in Rich Text Format (RTF). Click the '...' button to edit it with [Rich Content Editor](..\go-further\rich-content-editor.md).|
|WizardDescription||String||An additional description for the information panel that will appear in the instruction bar (only used if you enable the Wizard interface theme).|
Note: this dialog can be used to replace the Welcome/End screens. You can also use it to show a "setting summary" before file extraction for instance.
