Some issues with V3

Wizard for Windows Forms Forum

Using V3.0.107.0 under VS.NET 2K5 Beta 2

When developing a wizard and runing the application after more than one compile the label for 'Press Next to Continue' on a standard Wizard Welcome page moves. No modifications to any of the labels has been peformed (apart from change of text). The new position of the 'press....' label seems to end up just under the previous label (description of wizard label box). Rezing the form a little and recompiling puts the label back at the bottom of the form as it should be. Later it will move again!

The control validation code which was a fixed from Wizard V2 is still not functioning as expected. The Next button traps the invalid state of the control and forces the error provider to show. However, the Back button also goes through this validation but instead of preventing the page change, it proceeds to the previous page. In our example we have a custom error provider (a balloon control) and this is nwo displayed on the previous page. The Wizard sample also has the same issue but the standard error provider does not show on the previous page - it is still activated if you look closely at the page transition.

I've tested this under V3.0.108.0 and both problems are still present.
The latest build of this product (v24.1.0) was released 3 months ago, which was after this thread was created.
