Wish List request. . .

Alaska Hi Sunil, et al...

 I just purchased Activ a bit ago, and I'm very pleased with it.  A most excellent app, sir.  I've been recommending it to other members of the help authoring community in eHelp.com's forum, and to anyone else who will listen.

 I have a number of items for a wish list, but this, I hope, should be an easy one: specifically, a checkbox option to display/not display the password number in the ebooks' password entry dialog box Title and text.

I can pass an encrypted password number when the user decides to purchase, but the real number still shows up when they click the Password icon to enter it into the ebook.

If this is hidden, there is no way anyone could compile a list of working password numbers and corresponding passwords for any of my ebooks.

Thanks for listening, and again, Activ is an outstanding program!  Many Kudos!

Alaska  Ok, I'm answering my own question, 'cause I'm compulsive about closure.

 It seems that Sunil has already provided a means to change that dialog box text.  As a help author, we deal with a different kind of .lng file. and I overlooked it here.  Thanks to John Dodson for his help offline.

 The procedure:

 ˇ Click the "User Interface" tab,
 ˇ double-click anywhere to open the "Edit User Interface" box,
 ˇ click the Language "Edit" button,
 ˇ create a new file name,
 ˇ click OK.  

 ˇ A dialog box displays with tons of interface text options.  Just about everything is editable.

 ˇ use the "Language" dropdown box to select your language file for other projects.

 I found more info in the Activ help file when I did a search on "language".

And that's it.  Thanks.

 best -

EBookCompiler Another thing you can do is change the password protection page, Edit System Pages, Password tab, My Own page

What you could do is have some script in OnStart to go from {p} to an encrypted version of this number, and store in another variable, say {MyEncryptedP}

Then on the my own password page, you could use this in the link, by coding something like

<A HREF="##OPEN('http;//www.yoursite.com/somepage{MyEncryptedP}')">Click here</A>
