  • Overview

    The Stepper in Telerik UI for ASP.NET AJAX is a component that helps you split complicated interactions in your web application into logical steps with visual progress. A well-placed Stepper can significantly reduce cognitive burden when the user is required to do a bunch of work at once. For example, they might be going through the steps of purchasing a product and need to confirm their cart’s content, confirm their billing address and then pay via a third-party service. The Stepper is invaluable when it comes to simplifying navigation. 


    Telerik UI for ASP.NET AJAX Stepper Overview
  • Operation Models

    Telerik UI Stepper for web forms applications provides flexible configurations options that let you customize every aspect of it: 

    • Customize each step with labels, icons, and more  

    • Mark steps as optional 

    • Allow the user to go back to a previous step or skip several steps at once and fill them later 

    • Display errors and warnings about incorrectly filled in data directly in the stepper 

    • Choose from a variety of animations when users move between steps

  • Orientation, Layout and Customization

    Like our other controls, the Stepper is highly customizable. You can pick whether the stepper is oriented horizontally or vertically. Each step’s label can be aligned with the step number or offset next to it. Icons and colors can all be changed to merge the stepper with your application’s theme.

  • Keyboard Navigation and Accessibility

    Controls come in all shapes and sizes but so do users. It’s crucial that each of them can interact with the Stepper, so it is designed to work without a mouse with intuitive keyboard shortcuts (like arrows for previous/next steps and HOME/END for first/last). It can go right-to-left so it feels natural to RTL language speakers and provides ARIA attributes which makes it accessible to screen readers.
