Subject: [WiX-devs] WiX UI suggestions
I'm new to WiX and saw the request for suggestions on the UI here:
Several suggestions (that may have already been suggested):
I'd like to see several custom dialog templates similar to what Visual Studio provides; one with checkboxes, one with radio buttons, one for text, ... and possibly example XML on how to make use of them. What immediately comes to mind for the checkboxes is the ability to decided whether you want Desktop/Start Menu/Quick Launch shortcuts.
Another improvement would be to the install location dialog. The controls/icons are seriously outdated. The dropdown should use the XP style (or Vista style) and have at the root "Desktop" to mirror the explorer tree.
Adding these features would be a great help.
