The InstallAnywhere $IA_BROWSE_FOLDERS$ variable controls whether InstallAnywhere installers will use Swing or Native resources to render the Browse for Folder dialog box (also called the Select Folder dialog box). This distinction is important when localizing an installer.
- Native—When the $IA_BROWSE_FOLDERS$ variable is set to Native, the installer renders a Browse for Folder dialog box that has a look and feel consistent with the end user’s operating system.
- Swing—When the $IA_BROWSE_FOLDERS$ variable is set to Swing, the installer renders a Browse for Folder dialog box that uses the correct locale for all languages, and it is consistent across different platforms.
To learn more about each of these options and to compare their settings, check out the full article: Using the $IA_BROWSE_FOLDERS$ Variable to Specific Native or Swing Resources. What tips can you add?
