How do I get a user to fill in a text box and write the value to an ini file in INNO setup ?

Hi How do I get a user to fill in a text box and write the value to an ini file in INNO setup ?
I have a working script to do everything I need except add a value to an ini file.

"The solutions and answers provided on Experts Exchange have been extremely helpful to me over the last few years. I wear a lot of hats - Developer, Database Administrator, Help Desk, etc., so I know a lot of things but not a lot about one thing. Experts Exchange gives me answers from people who do know a lot about one thing, in a easy to use platform." -Todd S.
