A Wizard control is made up of a collection of WizardStep objects that represent single steps of a wizard. The Wizard control displays a single WizardStep object at a time. You can use a Wizard control and its associated WizardStep objects to collect related data in a linear or nonlinear fashion.


If you embed the Login control in a WizardStep, explicitly set the ActiveStepIndex in a Page_Load event handler if the user is authenticated. The Wizard control does not automatically advance to the next WizardStep in this scenario.

You cannot apply a theme to WizardStep but you can apply a theme to TemplatedWizardStep.


If you programmatically add a WizardStep in the Page_Load event handler, you must add the navigation to that step prior to the page loading.
