wizard general question RRS feed

    Hello. Can you tell me if the "Wizard" control is still "The thing people use?"

    I built many wizards from say 2008-2012 and it worked well. Then I sort of got out of it.

    Now I see all these CSS wizards and things... that aren't tied into .NET necessarily.

    Do I use these Or has the Wizard control been "kept up" on your side and I should use that? 

    Please advise. Thanks.

    Hi jbassett,

    A .Net Wizard control is used for VS.IDE and client apps.

    Wizard control attach itself to parent form event and when user press button dialog act like on button press.

    You can use the Wizard control to:

    Collect related data across multiple steps.

    Break up a larger Web page used to collect user input into smaller logical steps.

    Allow for either linear or nonlinear navigation through the steps.

    The property of CssClass is used to get or set the CSS class by the web server control on the client.

    For more detail, you could refer to the link as below:

    There are a lot of client side APIs these days because developers and business owners alike prefer a responsive UI that acts like a desktop.   

    Do not base your design decision on what others are doing.   Base your decision on which control or API best fits your design goal.
