SharePoint 2013 - Wizard for NewForm.aspx used within a list

Last Modified: 2015-03-23
I have created a new "newform.aspx" form to be used with a SharePoint 2013 list. I added an asp.net wizard to that page and distributed the 20 columns among 4 different wizard pages. When I add data to the fields, I am able to use the previous and next buttons and change pages without losing data in any column (the people field does not work, but that is not a major worry at the moment.) The problem comes when I go to save, or create the new item. The only columns (fields) that are saved within the new item are the columns (fields) from the current (focused) wizard page. It is not getting any other fields. State is enabled in the control. Is there a way to make this work correctly? Is there a setting in the machine.config file that needs to be made as there was in previous  asp.net versions (not within SharePoint)?
