modifying a string table entry via automation

Hello,

I want to modify a string table entry value, already present, in my .ism file, via Installshield automation.
But, I can't figure out how to do this.

The entry that I want to modify is in the ISString table.
And I know the ID of the string entry itself.
And I know what I want to change the value to.

I just can’t figure out what the code should look like.

I am already using automation to open the .ism file and change a number of entries for various things, before saving it and then building the .MSI file.

I’d would be grateful  for an example, from someone who has done such a thing.

Thanks in advance for considering my request for help.

Here's VB6-based pseudo-code, hopefully it will make sense. It will change the value of the row with id = "IDPROP_SETUPTYPE_COMPLETE" in the table ISStrings from the initial "Complete" to "Almost Complete".
    set isd = createobject("ISWiAuto16.ISWiProject")
    isd.OpenProject "<path>"
    
    For Each t In isd.ISWiLanguages(1).ISWiStringEntries
        If t.ID = "IDPROP_SETUPTYPE_COMPLETE" and t.Value = "Complete" Then t.Value = "Almost Complete"
    Next
    isd.SaveProject
    isd.CloseProject

Open in new window
