Hi, Micah.

[Sorry, I sent this mail to you already - but I missed sending it to the
list, so here is the 'official' version]

The approach with one form containing a switch for all the wizard pages and
buttons to navigate back and forth did work with Chiba 0.6.2.1, and it was
not even too much work.

Thank you.

Hiran

A "wizard" is just a special rendering of a multiple-page form, right?

To do that, you can use the <switch> construct, with each panel inside a
<case>. Separately, you can use <button>s that fire <toggle> events to
change which panel is presented.

Try this out and let us know how it works.

Thanks,

.micah

Hi there.

As I need to create some forms that need flexible use, I had a look at
XForms and am missing one feature (at least, it's not mentioned in the
XForms WD): Wizards.

I have searched the mailing list archives for that topic, only to find
others have asked about it, but there has not been a definitive answer.

So how are you supposed to build a Wizard? Shall all wizard pages reside in
one XForm document? Then how do you mark it as being a wizard? Which is the
start page, and how do you switch to subsequent pages? How do you ensure all
the pages operate with the same instance data?
