Thread: Developing a wizard

    Developing a wizard


    I am trying to develop a wizard moving from one page to another, but the user
    clicks Back button, the page has to retain the original selected values.
    Can anyone suggest how to work on this?

    Did you try using VB6's built-in Wizard Manager? It helps you create wizard
    applications.

    What are you using for your "pages"? If you are using separate forms, then
    instead of unloading the previous form on the Next button, do a Hide which
    will retain all the variables on the form, and when Back is clicked, use
    Show to reactivate the form.

    I use Frames or picture boxes in a control array for the "pages" of the
    wizard. All the instances of the frames are at the same location, but only
    one is visible at a time. The "next" and "back" buttons simply increment
    and decrement the page number and make the new page visible while making the
    old one invisible. Additional logic is needed to disable the "Next" button
    when the current page hasn't been validly filled-in, and to enable "Finish"
    when there's enough data to perform the wizard's work.
