Abstract

Disclosed is a graphical user interface method that provides a way for users to work in only one software wizard at a time while also allowing a user to access other parts of a software application. This method of implementing software wizards provides the ability for users to access important information outside of a software wizard that may affect actions that users take within a software wizard. However, a convention of allowing a user to work in only one software wizard at a time is maintained.
