The StepperSteps property and inner tag exposed by the RadStepper control allows you to configure each Step of the Stepper.

You can set the label and the icon of an indicator element and define whether they would be enabled and available for selection or not. You can further set the Step that would be initially selected. Each Step can also be set in error state.

The following example demonstrates how to set the configuration for the Steps. Each StepperStep can be customized by setting its various properties.

StepperSteps types

The StepperStep elements can be defined declaratively in the markup in the <Steps> tag:

<telerik:RadStepper runat="server" ID="RadStepper1" Skin="Silk" RenderMode="Lightweight" Width="750">
        <telerik:StepperStep Label="Personal Info" Icon="user"/>
        <telerik:StepperStep Label="Education" Error="true" Icon="dictionary-add"/>
        <telerik:StepperStep Label="Experience" Icon="flip-vertical" Selected="true"/>
        <telerik:StepperStep Label="Attachments" Icon="attachment" SuccessIcon="success"/>
        <telerik:StepperStep Label="Review" Icon="preview" Enabled="false"/>
        <telerik:StepperStep Label="Submit" Icon="file-add" />

They can also be added programmatically in the Steps collection of the RadStepper control:

StepperStep step = new StepperStep();
step.Label = "Step 3";
step.Icon = "attachment";
Dim step As StepperStep = New StepperStep()
step.Label = "Step 3"
step.Icon = "attachment"
