Hello,
I'm getting killed by this wizard control.  I have all the code for my app finished, and can not get the wizard control to behave accordingly.
I have 4 steps, 0-3.  Upon clicking next on step 1, depending on the code output they either go onto step 2 or back to step 1 for additional information.
Everything works fine till here, once the additional information is filled on step 1 and the next button is clicked it will not progress to step 2.  The attached NextButtonClick event is attached.

When coming from step 1B with the additional information and expecting to go to step 2
it will take me back to step 1.
on step 1
testLabel and TestLabel2 are both equal to 2.

so, shouldn't it be moving to step 2 and not get stuck on step 1?
protected void ShoppingCartSteps_NextButtonClick(object sender, WizardNavigationEventArgs e)

        {

            // check the Next Step Index to see where we are, and what we need to do:

            // e.NextStepIndex  == 1; Coming from Shopping Cart Overview

            // e.NextStepIndex == 2; Coming from Mailing and Shipping Address;  Going to:  CC input

            if (e.NextStepIndex == 1)

            {

                // Coming From 'Order Overview'

                // Going to 'Contact Information'

                // set all the variables

                mycookies = new CookieContainer();

                GeoCodes = new ArrayList();

                GeoTexts = new ArrayList();

                GeoPresent = "";

            }
 

            if (e.NextStepIndex == 2)

            {

                if (GeoRadioButton1.Visible == false)

                {

                    // Going to input CC information

                    // if GeoRadioButton1 is not Visible, then we are not coming from Step 1B

                    PostToServer1();

                    string present = CheckForGeoCodes();
 

                    if (present == "present")

                    {

                        // Server sent us back to the same page, to Validate Inside City Limits

                        ShoppingCartSteps.ActiveStepIndex = 1;

                    }

                    else

                    {

                        ShoppingCartSteps.ActiveStepIndex = 2;

                    }
 

                }

                else

                {

                    testLabel.Text = e.NextStepIndex.ToString();

                    ShoppingCartSteps.ActiveStepIndex = 2;

                    testLabel2.Text = ShoppingCartSteps.ActiveStepIndex.ToString();

                    // if GeoRadioButton.Visible is Visible, then we are coming from Step 1B, need to find which

                    // GeoRadioButton is checked

                    // Therefore go to PostTo Server2               

                }

            }

It depends on the checks you have put
>if (present == "present")

May be the values are not as expected.

I put in some response.writes to make sure the parts of the code I was expecting to run was running ... it turns out, that when I was setting the ActiveStepIndex back to 1 (when it was planning on going to 2), that e.Cancel was being set to true, and the next time the NextButtonClick event was ran, e.Cancel retained it's true setting, and I had to set back to false.  Figured that out when someone suggested I just use e.Cancel to keep them on the current step rather than setting the ActiveStepIndex ... so, I blame Microsoft, having that parameter retain it's value on a new NextButtonClick Event seems kind of logically backwards to me
