A stepper/wizard leads a user through a process step by step. It contains a series of single-step instructions, and is often used for a setup and configuration tasks or a longer workflow. Read more about steppers/wizards in the UX Guidelines.
Also you can check out the wizards.
- The user needs guidance through a multi-step process, for instance if it's a low frequency task or the steps to take are unclear
- Steps have to be done in a specific order
- The task has a clear start and end
There are 2 options for the stepper: horizontal and vertical, on 2 sizes.
Follow the code from the right panel to get the styles for the horizontal stepper, regular size.
Compressed version -
Here you can find an example of the compressed version for the horizontal stepper:
No ellipsis -
Here you can find an example of the stepper where the labels will be visible all the time, no ellipsis will appear if the label is too long. We don't recommend you to have more then 2 rows per label.
If you'd like a smooth animation to be applyed on each step as you go through them just add
.transition class in the parent div.
