As you already know, wizards are a ubiquitous feature of most Windows applications. Whether designed to break-down complex data entry forms or to provide step-by-step guidance for end-users, wizards have become an indispensable UI solution for software developers.

With the DevExpress VCL ExpressWizard control, you no longer have to spend countless hours building and configuring application wizards. You simply drop the control and instantly turn your form into a multi-page wizard. All you need to worry about is actual page content and implementing your own page navigation logic when necessary.

Superior Appearance

Among the major advantages of the DevExpress ExpressWizard control is its appearance / theme management options. By using the features listed below, you can build elegant and impeccable interfaces with ease.

  • With the ExpressWizard, you can design dialogs that conform to either the Wizard 97 or Aero Wizard standard and switch to the required standard at any time using a single option. Creating standard based UIs has never been easier!
  • The ExpressWizard fully supports the DevExpress VCL Skinning Library... cutting-edge UIs are only a few clicks away and you can be certain that your wizard control will look and feel the same as all other DevExpress VCL controls within your application.
  • By using slide and fade in/fade out effects, as well as content size animation, you can significantly improve the visual appeal of your wizard during page transition operations.

Better Wizard Design Experience

All service elements (including navigation buttons, wizard title, page titles, descriptions, and watermarks) in the ExpressWizard are created and aligned automatically. All you need to do is provide text and images for these elements via appropriate properties.

To help you get started with the ExpressWizard control, we provide IDE templates that allow you to create your wizards from scratch. Open the New Items dialog in a supported IDE and browse for the available Wizard Application or Wizard Form template.

With the ExpressWizard, all design-time operations are at your fingertips. You can create as many pages as you like either via the control's context menu or the specially designed Page Collection Editor. To switch between pages, you can use navigation buttons – just as you would do at runtime.

Better Navigation Control

If your application requires a straightforward step-by-step guide, then you won't write a single line of code to enable page navigation when using the DevExpress VCL ExpressWizard control. These types of scenarios are automatically supported by the ExpressWizard. To create a more advanced experience that includes conditional navigation or data validation for specific pages, you need only to handle the appropriate control events. With these events, you can initialize or update the page content, switch navigation button states, or dynamically change page flow.
