New to Actipro and thinking about using the wizard for a complex application that will invlove many steps where the user may not be able to complete in one session. Anyone ever consider how you might add persistence to the wizard - allow the user to save where they are and continue at a later time? Would this be a complex extension to the Actipro wizard library?

Thanks,

Mike

Hi Mike,

As for saving/restoring data, you could bind your controls to view model properties and then serialize that out somehow and restore it later.  That's more of a general question you could probably find a lot of answers on if you look on Microsoft's or StackOverflow's forums.

As for persistance in the wizard steps, you could just save off the selected page index and then restore that again later on when you reopen the wizard.  That's just a regular int value, so it's easily serialized.

That's kind of what I was thinking - just fishing to see if someone had done it and their thoughts on it

   Thanks
