Activating Select Properties in Wizard Control
Posted on 2013-05-31
I have a form built using an asp.net wizard control. The form may be used to enter new records as well as to edit incomplete records. In edit mode the user may use the sidebar links to jump to the particular section in need of editing. The last step before finalizing writes out all of the values that have been entered for user review.
My problem is in edit mode where various controls are bound to saved data for the record. I use a stringbuilder to write out the values to be reviewed and grabbing tb1.text works fine. The problem is getting the selected text from dropdowns. Anything on step one is fine since the process starts there, but any dropdowns on skipped steps don't seem to be accessible until I go and activate that step. If I then return to the review (no changes made) all is well. Right now it appears my choices are to force the user to step through the entire form again or to provide incomplete feedback for review. Is there any way to trick the wizard into activating those steps on load when I am in edit mode?
Thanks for any nuggets of wisdom I might try.
