The Long Version

Please see the the manual for full details on using Wizard Behavior - it also fully documents the API and contains example code, and/or download the demo application.

Plot-Branching Navigation (PBN)

PBN allows a wizard to change the path depending on a response from a user. A simple example: you ask the user their gender; you can then take a different path through the wizard presenting gender specific forms depending on their response.
