I found a solution for it..and  the help i had recvd had nothing to do with the solution..

Here is the soln..

try: installData.getVariable("variable_name") where installData is an InstallData object and variable_name is the name of your variable.  If you receive the value null then there is no value associated with that variable name.

All panels are created upon startup of the intaller, if the variable's value changes during the course of the installation you need to check for this in your panel's 'panelActivate()' method.

I would like the soln to be PAQ'd

Thanks!
