Re: Wizard overview bar

Hi Natalie,

If I understand your description correctly, then updating your wizard to
use AJAX is a matter of (1) replacing links/buttons with AJAX ones, and (2)
adding the overview bar to the AjaxRequestTarget so that it gets updated.

An approach to #1 is to construct links/buttons with a factory method that
knows whether the wizard is AJAX or not.
An approach to #2 in Wicket 1.5 is for your wizard to override
Component#onEvent() and add the overview bar to AjaxRequestTarget
payloads[1]. In 1.4 I think you're stuck with something more manual. Maybe
the factory method in #1 produces links/buttons that do this by default.

 Hi all,

 I have a wizard implemented that walks the user through a dynamic amount of
 steps. I also added an overview bar to show progress to the user,
 essentially a picture moving an arrow from left to right. So far the
 overview is defined upon wizard creation with the picture staying the same
 in all steps.
 Now, I can go ahead and make an Ajax wizard out of my normal wizard and
 hopefully update the overview bar with every step. Before going to such
 lengths, though, is there a way to do it with the regular wizard?

 Natalie

 P.S. Wicket 1.4.19

Thanks for the quick reply!

I think I can go the AJAX way, I was just wondering if there's something
quicker than that.

Like an application setting that AJAX-ifies your entire app? No, Wicket
makes AJAX relatively easy but you still need to make decisions, for
example about what gets rendered in the response.

Re: Wizard overview bar

2012-02-23 Thread N. Metzger
Dan,

that's not what I meant. It never occurred to me to make my entire
Application AJAX. I meant I can make an AjaxWizard, no problem. 

My question was about the basic wizard, if I can have an overview bar that
is changeable while using the regular Wizard class. But I guess not...

Thanks,

Natalie

Ah, sorry for my misunderstanding. Have you experimented
with IWizardModelListener#onActiveStepChanged()? Maybe you can get the ART
with AjaxRequestTarget.get() and add your overview bar.
