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.

AppId={{82C8C949-44A8-49C4-8CED-8DD0ACD0DCCF}
AppName=My Program
AppVerName=My Program 1.5
AppPublisher=My Company, Inc.
AppPublisherURL=http://www.example.com/
AppSupportURL=http://www.example.com/
AppUpdatesURL=http://www.example.com/
DefaultDirName={pf}\My Program
DefaultGroupName=My Program

[Files]

; NOTE: Don't use "Flags: ignoreversion" on any shared system files

[Icons]
Name: "{group}\My Program"; Filename: "{app}\MyProg.exe"
Name: "{commondesktop}\My Program"; Filename: "{app}\MyProg.exe"; Tasks: desktopicon

[Run]
Filename: "{app}\MyProg.exe"; Description: "{cm:LaunchProgram,My Program}"; Flags: nowait postinstall skipifsilent

[INI]
Filename: {app}\prefs.ini; Section: AUTH; Key: USERNAME; String: {code:GetUserName}
Filename: {app}\prefs.ini; Section: AUTH; Key: PASSWORD; String: {code:GetPassword}


[code]
var
AuthPage : TInputQueryWizardPage;

procedure InitializeWizard;
begin
AuthPage := CreateInputQueryPage(wpWelcome,
    'Account Information', 'Please enter your Account Information',
    '');
  AuthPage.Add('Username:', False);
  AuthPage.Add('Password:', True);
end;

function AuthForm_NextButtonClick(Page: TWizardPage): Boolean;
begin
  Result := True;
end;

function GetUserName(Param: String): string;
begin
result := AuthPage.Values[0];
end;

function GetPassword(Param: String): string;
begin
result := AuthPage.Values[1];
end;
