This class provides a mechanism to generate multi-step web forms, similar to those used as the user interfaces for software installers.

It is used by adding the input fields that should appear in each page of the steps of the wizard form and then generates the whole form in a single page with controls to interactively switch between the sets of inputs of each wizard step.

Sometimes the sites need to ask their users to fill long forms. A common solution to make the form filling less confusing and tyring to the user, is to split the forms in multiple pages.

This class provides a solution for presenting long forms in a way that they appear to show as multiple pages, but in reality it is just a single page form that has multiple sections with only one section visible to the user at each time.

This solution simplifies the processing of the forms as the server side script to which the forms are submitted does not need to handle requests to navigate between the form sections, as that happens only on the client browser side due to clever use of Javascript and dynamic HTML.
