Dynamic Installer Requirements - <dynamicinstallerrequirements>

Introduced in IzPack 5.0, the <dynamicinstallerrequirements>  element is used to enhance the "classic" installer requirement checking that IzPack does at the beginning of an installation process. This stops the installation unless a certain condition is met.

With the dynamicinstallerrequirements element, you can check a certain set of conditions on each panel change, using a panel data validator to check if the required conditions are met.

Common Example

The installer requirement is actively checked on changing from each panel the DynamicInstallerRequirementValidator is assigned to.

If a condition applies, a messagebox is shown with the appropriate content from translation. Depending on the value of severity attribute the installation might be continued or is aborted:

  • "ERROR"
    The messagebox is shown and the installation aborts.
    The messagebox is shown and the installation can continue after the OK button is pressed.

A more detailed example:

On each panel with a DynamicInstallerRequirementValidator assigned will be evaluated according to the requirements given as nested elements in <dynamicinstallerrequirements>.

Possible values: "WARNING" | "ERROR"
