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\
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.
