Wizard

Hi,

I am trying to implement a wizard. Each step in the wizard actually fetches data on a remote server so it may take some time. For some of the steps, the next step is determined according to the choice made in that step.

Is there anything in Vaadin that helps this?

Thanks,
S.

You probably want to make the remote server request in a separate thread and use either the standard
ProgressIndicator
component (in [tt]
setIndeterminate(true)
[/tt] mode) or the
Refresher
add-on for polling. See
an example
.

You can implement a wizard in many ways and requirements are usually rather application specific, so there’s no ready general-purpose component for that. Just use normal component composition.

Sounds good, thanks.
