In a bootstrapper application or managed bootstrapper application, the answer is yes since you can hook into all the usual WPF events.

In the MSI UI, there are no validation events to hook into, so you'll have to chain into the "NEXT" button which makes page changes rather slow--but it works.

If you want a good validation experience, a bootstrapper application is the way to go.  All my products are moving in that direction.

Hello Guys,

                I have a custom dialog that has a Edit control for insert an URL.

<Control Type="Edit" Id="Edit_URL" Property="CA_URL" Width="200" Height="15" X="146" Y="199">

I would like validate the URL and make a ping/telnet for testing the connection. I should allow jump to the next dialog if the connection is ok.

Is that possible? If yes, how can I do it?

With kind regards,
Pedro Lopes
