Please take some time to learn more about us and our product offerings.
We're getting very close to having the next big maintenance release for WPF Studio v3.5 ready. One of the larger new controls that is part of Wizard is the new AeroWizard control. AeroWizard inherits our normal Wizard control but provides a custom UI that mimics the style of wizards found in Windows Vista.

Note that all of the glass rendering and title bar area is handled for you. We have a special AeroWizardWindow class that is a Window intended to contain an AeroWizard. You can interact with the expanded title bar region just like you would in the true non-client title bar area of the window, meaning double-click to toggle maximization, click and drag to move the window, right click to display the system menu, etc.
In Aero wizards, the Back button appears in the title bar to keep consistency with the other Vista explorer windows and task dialogs.
Since AeroWizard inherits Wizard, it supports all the many features you've come to love in the core Wizard product, including command-base page switching, animated page transitions, and much more.
Want to get started building Aero wizards fast? The new build will include a VS 2008 item template that gets you going in seconds with a fully-functional Aero wizard template window.
No Aero wizard is complete without the special buttons called command buttons that sometimes allow for choices within the main page area. We've fully implemented command buttons for you, and they even have the smooth animation when you move the mouse over them or click on them.
We're very excited to offer Aero wizards in WPF Studio with the upcoming release.
