jQuery Form Plugin - FormToWizard
FormToWizard jQuery Plugin turns a long web form into a wizard


If you have a large web form with semantically dividable sections, we can say that each section represents a sub task of a larger task of filling the entire web form. In order to increase useability, each sub task can become a step with a description, form fields and navigation that is common for wizard forms – back and next. The entire process can be done in several simple steps.

If you try to use Enter key in ASP.NET, according to your browser type, you can get really weird results. In my previous article Default Button in ASP.NET 1.1, I described two methods to make enter key default button for form inputs in ASP.NET 1.1.

Fortunately, ASP.NET 2.0 makes this easier by introducing a concept of "default button" that can be used with either a <form> or <asp:panel> control. What button will be "clicked" depends of where acutally cursor is and what button is choosen as a default button for form or a panel.

For example, with the below sample:

   <form defaultbutton=“button1” runat=“server”>
      <asp:button id=“button1” text=“btn1” runat=“server”/>
         <asp:panel defaultbutton=“button2” runat=“server”>
            <asp:textbox id=“textbox1” runat=“server”/>
            <asp:button id=“button2”  text="btn2" runat=“server”/>

If the enter key is selected the first time the page is loaded, "button1" will be the button that receives the post-back event. If the enter key is hit while the user has their cursor focus within the "textbox1" textbox (contained within the <asp:panel>), then "button2" will be the button that receives the post-back event.
