This project will no longer be maintained.

I am in the process of working with @VinceG to combine the functionality
of this plugin with his https://github.com/VinceG/twitter-bootstrap-wizard

Because my plugin was really a port from a JQuery UI/Wijmo plugin, I feel
that it is far from optimal for use with Bootstrap. It does it's job. But
it has a lot of overhead and baggage from the aforementioned projects that
I'm not fond of.

Vince's project, on the other hand, is built from the ground up with the 
spirit of Bootstrap built in from the get go. I've already contributed 
some pull requests and plan to work more on contributing to it, rather than 
to continue duplicating our efforts and trying to force this plugin into 
something it's not.

If you would like to make sure your favorite features in this plugin make 
it over to that plugin I urge you to start following @VinceG's project.

Bootstrap Wizard

Uses Bootstrap and JQuery to provide a highly customizable and powerful Wizard UI to your project. A wizard is used to display sections of content on separate, navigable pages so you can save screen real estate or simplify input tasks by creating a series of forms.

Compatible IE7+, FF, Chrome, Safari

Credits

Modified from Wijmo under GPLv3 to accomodate Bootstrap styles and functionality instead of JQueryUI and Wijmo Complete.

Adapted CSS from @wotaewer for the tabs.

Utilizes jquery.cookie.js and jquery.ui.widget.js which are both included in this project.

Requirements

Bootstrap v2.0+
(If custom build is used, you will want to include badges, buttons, well, and modal)

JQuery v1.4+

Usage

Include the following to your page:

<script src="Bootstrap_Wizard/js/bwizard.min.js"></script>
<link rel="stylesheet" href="Bootstrap_Wizard/css/bwizard.min.css">

Full Markup and Scripting

The markup used to create a Bootstrap Wizard instance should resemble one of the following:

Pages only:

<div>
	<div></div>
	<div></div>
</div>

Pages with titles:

<div>
	<ol>
		<li>This is the first step.</li>
		<li>This is the second step.</li>
	</ol>
	<div></div>
	<div></div>
</div>

Note: If Bootstrap Responsive is being used, Badges will automatically turn on in the tabs and text will be hidden for phone sizes. To force badges to appear on all sizes, use OL instead of UL.

You can initialize the widget with the following jQuery script:

<script>
	$(document).ready(function () {
		$("#wizard").bwizard();
	});
</script>

cache

  • An option that determines whether to cache remote bwizard content. Cached content is being lazy loaded, for example once and only once for the panel is displayed.

clickableSteps

  • Determines whether step tabs are clickable
  • Type: Boolean

cookie

  • The cookie option is a value that stores the latest active index in a cookie. The cookie is then used to determine the initially active index if the activedIndex option is not defined. This option requires a cookie plugin. The object needs to have key/value pairs of the form the cookie plugin expects as options. For example: { expires: 7, path: '/', domain: 'mysite.com', secure: true }
  • Type: {}
  • Default: null

  • Type: number
  • Default: 3000
  • Code example: $("#wizard").delay({delay: 3000});

hideOption

  • The hideOption option defines the animation effects when hiding the panel content. For example, {blind: true, fade: true, duration: 200}.

loop

  • The loop option allows the wizard to begin again from the first panel when reaching the last panel in autoPlay mode.

  • Type: String
  • Default: 'next'
  • Code example: $("#wizard").bwizard({nextBtnText: "next Button"});

panelTemplate

  • The panelTemplate option is an HTML template from which a new panel is created. The new panel is created by adding a panel with the add method or when creating a panel from a remote panel on the fly.

  • Code example: $("#wizard").bwizard({panelTemplate: ’<div class="myPanelClass"></div>’});

showOption
