>Goto WiederHolen 'goes back to reentry point before dialog box
Rather than Goto WiederHolen (the beginning), display your UserDialog again
at this point, within the IfThen statement. User input should remain.
True, but it costs a lot of lines of code. Using a variable to store the
string, then to display it the second+ time through is much more efficient.
InstallationDlg.Comment$ = userstring$ would cause the user's input to be
displayed as the default text. If you set userstring$ to "" before the
WiederHolen, and set userstring$ to InstallationDlg.Comment$ before looping
back, the default text for the comment field is blank the first time and
has user's input thereafter. Only takes 3 lines of code!
