Create custom and Aero Wizards with the help of this library that relies on Visual Styles to get visual theming, all while meeting Microsoft guidelines
Aero Wizard .NET Library is a library designed to help users create custom Aero Wizards. The library relies on Visual Styles to help design a visual theme and, since it requires Visual Studio, it is fully compliant with the Microsoft guidelines.
There are three major controls integrated into the project, namely WizardPageContainer, WizardControl, and StepWizardControl. While the first enables users to create a custom wizard, managing page creation and navigation, the second on the list is capable of building on the container to guarantee a seamless Aero Wizard experience. Furthermore, it ensures the wizard can morph correctly on each operating system in part.
StepWizardControl’s role is to include a list hinting at the current position through the flow by extending WizardControl.
It is worth mentioning that the library provides developers with a positive design-time experience that consequently allows them to focus on the wizard function and not on possible inconsistencies and ways of avoiding their effects.
According to the developer, the project comes with some extra features, namely a fully evented generic list, several controls for labels and buttons that can paint correctly on glass, an extension class that allows painting glowing text and a specific class that permits the creation of extended glass window effect.
