Summary: In this video we discuss the Wizard control. This control is very handy in walking the user through predetermined steps to get something accomplished. For example, you might need to user to purchase an item from your store: you start with the items to be selected, then the summary, then the user personal information (name, address…), then the payment screen, then the summary screen, then the confirmation screen. In this case, we created a simple control with 5 steps. In every step we added one control. We collected the information we needed from the user, and then the last step is for the user to accept our conditions. This last step contains the finish button. When clicked, the user will be redirected to another page that thanks him/her for the registration. The user’s name is sent in a querystring from the wizard to the confirmation page.
Methodology of the development of example: Good coding standard and simplified design to illustrate the key points.
