Edit Final Screen

This page allows you to modify the settings for the Final screen dialog box. The final dialog displays the text you want (in rich text format): it should tell end users that the file extraction was successful. And this is generally the last dialog box shown to them. It is similar to the final screen you find in the traditional Windows wizards.

It will look like the following screenshot:

The Final screen can be optionally displayed if you leave the textbox empty.

Note for advanced users: if you want to display an error message if the file extraction failed, you can use custom actions to check the value of the %TOTALEXTFILE% variable. If the latter is equal to 0, then an error occurred.

Check Boxes and Additional Tasks

It is possible to add check boxes to this dialog box. These check boxes allow end users to decide whether they wish the package to execute some final tasks or not when it closes, such as “displaying readme” or “launching the application”… Learn more about enabling display of check boxes on this dialog.

End users can only press Back to return to a previous screen or Close to exit.

Editing the screen text

  • To edit the text, press the Edit button and the Rich Text Pad editor will be opened.

  • To clear the text, press Clear.

  • To use a default end screen template, press Template and select the one you wish in the displayed menu list.

In multilanguage packages

Paquet Builder can create multilanguage packages: they are compiled with several different languages and then automatically translate the texts of their user interface in the more appropriate language at runtime (automatically determined or user-selected). The End dialog can display in several languages: for each language you decide to compile into the package, you need normally to write a localized end rich text. Use the language list to select the language in which you would like to edit the end text.

Some important notes about how this wizard dialog works:

  • If an end text is not available in the language selected by end users at runtime, the package will then use the one that was written for the default language.

  • If the end text of the default language is left blank, the End screen will be disabled (not shown to users) even if welcome texts for other languages are available! In fact the default language determines which wizard dialogs should be displayed to end users: be sure to first select the default language in the languages list page before you start writing end texts.
