Hi,
I have downloaded the trail version. Before buying I would like to validate our requirement with the control:
Is it possible to add a new button in the line of "back", "next" buttons. This button is called "view log" and we need to make sure that this is always available just like the way we have the "back", "next" buttons.
Pl let me know,
Thanks!

Sure you can do this... just add your button to the Controls collection of the Wizard. The Wizard control fires a LayoutButtons event when it positions buttons. If you handle that you can align your button with the others.

Sure... once you've added the button do something like this in the event handler:
if (button != null)
    button.Location = new Point(7, e.BackButtonLocation.Y);

Also how do i get the finish button to show up on the wizard form? Will it only show up on "exterior" pages?

This VB code can be inserted at the end of the constructor of our MainForm.vb and demonstrates an external button:
Dim button As Button = New Button()
button.Text = "Test"
Me.Wizard.Controls.Add(button)
button.Location = New Point(10, Me.ClientSize.Height - 30)
You can set the WizardPage class' FinishButtonEnabled and NextButtonEnabled properties to show the Finish button instead of the Next button. Check out our sample project for a sample of doing that.
