Standard Action Properties
Previous Topic  Next Topic 

ID

A unique identifier for this object.  This ID is generated when the object is created and does not change throughout the life of the object.


Component

This property tells you what action was originally used to create this object.


Active

This tells InstallJammer whether this object is active or not.  An inactive object is not packaged when building an installer.


Alias

An alias is an alias by which to call an object ID.  Any object in InstallJammer that has an ID can also have an alias.  This makes it easier to remember objects by their alias instead of their object ID.  For example, the Install Actions group that is created for a new project is aliased to be called Install Actions to make it easier to call from other actions.


Comment

Comments are sometimes provided by InstallJammer to tell you what an object is doing, but they are usually set by someone building the project.  Comments are not used by InstallJammer for anything and can contain any text you want.


Conditions

This tells you if there are any conditions placed on the object that will be checked during installation.  Selecting this property will let you bring up the Conditions Editor to see and modify any conditions on the object.


Data

This property is used to hold user-specific data.  Just like comments, this data is not used by InstallJammer and is safe for you to store anything you want into it.  This can be helpful for storing other bits of relevant data with an object in the system for use by other objects, actions or conditions.


Execute Action 

This tells InstallJammer when to execute the given action.  The descriptions of when to execute mean just what they say.  The default is After Pane is Displayed, which means to execute the action after the given pane has been displayed to the user.


Ignore Errors

This tells InstallJammer to ignore any errors that might occur while executing this action.  Errors usually occur because of bad data, but they can be as a result of bugs.  If this option is set to Yes, InstallJammer will keep moving to the next action / pane when it encounters an error instead of stopping the install.
