Hello:

I am trying to create a wizard in visual basic, specifically that directs user to enter text, and then proceed to the next frame where they will enter more text.  What is the most efficient way of accomplishing this?

There could be variations, but I think that the simplest one might be overlaying a series of user controls on a form. When the user presses Forward, you make the current control invisible. When he presses, Backward you make visible the previous control.

Something similar could be achieved by using a series of forms, but user controls require a little less memory, and since they are all in the same form, they make things easier because all the data is available inside of the form that contains the controls.

I haven't had the opportunity to try this solution, but will do this evening.  I will comment on if it is successful later.  Thank you.  Robert
