Step 3 – Wizards | ForNAV App Building

Wizard pages are working on a revival from being almost forgotten. They were first introduced as form objects in Navision 3.0 as part of CRM. I instantly fell in love and started to create them for my own add-on.

Wizard pages have a few great advantages to normal pages and let’s go over them.

  1. Save Button – Even though it is not called “Save” the Wizard page is one of the few options in NAV you have to populate data, validate it and cancel the operation without a hassle.
