Default Chapter 4|Pg.120 - Step 7

In step 7 we drag the label for the final "Ready" WizardStep directly into the source/markup view instead of trying to do so in Design View. Just to see why you had us do it this way, I tried clicking on "Ready" in Design View and the wizard control disappeared, and in the markup the asp:Wizard code was no longer housed within the asp:Panel. I did this a couple more times and depending on where or how I clicked on "Ready", the behavior would alter, but I'd still have to do a CTRL+Z and undo the click to get my wizard control to display again.

I can see why you had us drag the label in markup view, but I'm just curious if there is a reason why this control has a problem when clicking on Wizard Steps that are marked as "Completed" when the other steps don't have an issue.

Thanks.

Hi there,

The Wizard shouldn't disappear from Markup View; only from Design View.

Although you should probably ask the Microsoft developer that did the Wizard for the real reason, I had you add it in Markup View because a Complete step doesn't have any content to begin with (no navigation bar). This means if you activate that step, the wizrad becomes so small you can no longer see it. You could drag the edges of the Wizard to make it bigger and thus visible, but that also sets the Height and the Width on the control which may not be what you want.

I can't reproduce the problem of the disappearing wizard here. Sounds like a bug which you may want to report to Microsoft.

Cheers,

Imar

Yes, Design View makes sense, as I explained earlier. If it disappers from Markup View, it's a bug...
