Best way to create multi-page "wizards'

P: n/a
I am moving a classic ASP app to ASP.NET (c#). It is a series of pages that
collect data, validtae the data and move to the next form. I used
response.redirect in the classic ASP app but want to know what options I
have for an ASP.NET app.

I could use pannels, but that would require a rather large set of viewstate
data. I have about 15 forms, each with about 5-10 data elements. I could
also use server.transfer I guess.

My question is, what options would be the best for this type of app? Should
I continue to use response.redirect?

Thanks for any ideas!

One approach is to create each step as a user control (.ascx) and swap them
in and out of a single .aspx page. You need to control each stage to know
which is the previous, current and next control to display.

I've had success using the free FSM Wizard Engine at
http://www.gotdotnet.com/Community/W...d=3136e1b3-0b2
4-4a1e-b77a-5777118b620f

It's based on an MSDN article (see the documentation link at the website)
which shows examples and overall it's pretty easy to integrate into an
application.

Good Luck!
