Question

How can I format the text of my install?

 

Answer

Wise has a pre-defined variable, %CRLF%, that holds the value of a carriage return/line feed. Place this variable at the end of an existing variable.

Example: %MAINDIR%%CRLF%

This causes the value of MAINDIR to break a string into an appropriate list of information.

For example, use a While Statement in your script to read a file (.txt, .ini, Autoexec.bat, and so on) with the goal to generate a list of information. Without using the %CRLF% variable, the While Statement will return information as a string. %CRLF% breaks the string into smaller pieces suitable for listing.
