Normally the Wizardstep is only validating when stepping forward.
When I use the OnActiveStepChanged event the Wizard validates also validates on stepping backwards.
Can this be prevented? Is this a bug or by design?
The back button is triggering the postback but the validators are preventing the change on the server-side.
To overcome this, you can set the ActiveStepIndex manually in the PreviousButtonClick server-side event:
protected void RadWizard1_PreviousButtonClick(object sender, WizardEventArgs e)
if (e.CurrentStepIndex == e.NextStepIndex )
RadWizard1.ActiveStepIndex = e.CurrentStepIndex-1;
Thanks this does the trick.
For what it's worth, this also goes for the NavigationBarButtonClick event.
