The Dojo Toolkit Wizard vs. Microsoft`s Web Wizard
Wizards are very useful for Internet applications. Users are often very comfortable with them. This article compares the look and feel of two wizards, and shows the code behind one of them (the code behind the other one was discussed in a previous article).
The Dojo Toolkit Wizard vs. Microsoft`s Web Wizard (Page 1 of 4 )
Wizards are increasingly being used in Internet applications. The Wizard Control which was introduced in ASP.NET 2.0 is a server side control that provides the functionality of controls with which users are familiar. Some examples of these controls are the Windows ODBC Manager; controls that form the basis for the Oracle 10G XE's database; and many others.
In an earlier article a demo of the web wizard a la Microsoft Visual Studio 2005 was presented. When the wizard is used the page itself is not refreshed, but the information that is stored in the page is presented in a consolidated view at the conclusion of the wizard's tasks.
This article is about a web wizard using the DOJO Toolkit's wizard widget. The code sample from one of the examples from the dojo documentation is modified to duplicate the demo of my previous article. In this case as well, the page is not refreshed and what is more, this is pure client script. For this article the toolkit version 0.4 was used together with IIS 5.1.
