Presentation Transcript

  • Wizard control is newly added in ASP.NET 2.0.

  • This control enables us to create an wizard based interface for a user. 

  • Typically a wizard interface will be used when we require a user to input a lot of data.

  • Wizard enables us to take the data from the user a series of multiple steps.


  • An another alternative to wizard based interface is using the tab interface but unlike the tab interface the wizard allows us only an serial navigation between steps i.e. In a tabbed interface a user can jump between tabs (if not controlled) but in a wizard the user can go either to the previous or the next step.


  • The control provided by ASP.NET 2.0 simulates the wizard completely. It provides us with a start, interim and finish templates. Each step in the wizard can inherit from one of these templates.



  • The Wizard control is a composite control that inherits from the CompositeControl base class and gets integrated designer support from Visual Studio® 2005. It posts back to itself to maintain view state information. This fact alone allows for nonlinear navigation and guarantees that form elements are automatically repopulated across multiple views of the wizard procedure.


  • Wizard Control Architecture  the CompositeControl base class and gets integrated designer support from Visual Studio® 2005. It posts back to itself to maintain view state information. This fact alone allows for nonlinear navigation and guarantees that form elements are automatically repopulated across multiple views of the wizard procedure.



Using the wizard control
Using the Wizard Control text, markup, images, and custom user controls.

  • A Wizard control is made up of four main parts: header, view of the current step, navigation bar, and sidebar. All of these constituent parts, and much more, can be styled using a number of properties, such as those listed in Figure 2. The contents of the header, sidebar, and navigation bar can be further customized through the templates listed in Figure 3.
