Hi,

 

I want to use BackColor to change the background of my setup window, but it has no function. The background is always white.

 

Here is a simple example script created by the wizard of Inno Script studio. What do I have to do to get a gay background even with WizardStyle=modern?

 

Inno Setup 6.2.0

 

; Script generated by the Inno Script Studio Wizard.

; SEE THE DOCUMENTATION FOR DETAILS ON CREATING INNO SETUP SCRIPT FILES!

 

#define MyAppName "My Program"

#define MyAppVersion "1.5"

#define MyAppPublisher "My Company, Inc."

#define MyAppURL "http://www.example.com/"

#define MyAppExeName "MyProg.exe"

Please ignore my last  eMail. I found out the BackColur refers to that old Win3.1-Style Setup whith a clue background on the whole monitor.

Sorry

These settings only affect the background window shown if [Setup] directive WindowVisible is set to yes (and I'm surprised this hasn't been removed yet).

 

If you want to change the wizard window background, you'll have to use [Code].

Thank you for the advice with the [Code]

I now do this and it works perfect for me:

procedure InitializeWizard;
var i:integer;
    NoteBook:TNewNoteBook;
begin
  NoteBook:=WizardForm.WelcomePage.NoteBook; // don't know how to get access to the Notebook instance otherwise
  for i:=0 to NoteBook.PageCount - 1 do
    NoteBook.Pages[i].Color:=$F5F2F7;
end;

Just WizardForm.WelcomePage.NoteBook.Pages[i].Color:=$f5f2f7; should work.
