Steppers

Steppers

Steppers convey progress through numbered steps.

Steppers display progress through a sequence of logical and numbered steps. They may also be used for navigation. Steppers may display a transient feedback message after a step is saved.

Types of Steps

  • Editable
  • Non-editable
  • Mobile
  • Optional

Types of Steppers

  • Horizontal
  • Vertical
  • Linear
  • Non-linear

Horizontal Linear

The Stepper can be controlled by passing the current step index (zero-based) as the activeStep property. Stepper orientation is set using the orientation property.

This example also shows the use of an optional step by placing the optional property on the second Step component. Note that it's up to you to manage when an optional step is skipped. Once you've determined this for a particular step you must set completed={false} to signify that even though the active step index has gone beyond the optional step, it's not actually complete.

Horizontal Non-linear

Non-linear steppers allow users to enter a multi-step flow at any point.

This example is similar to the regular horizontal stepper, except steps are no longer automatically set to disabled={true} based on the activeStep property.

We've used the StepButton here to demonstrate clickable step labels as well as setting the completed flag however because steps can be accessed in a non-linear fashion it's up to your own implementation to determine when all steps are completed (or even if they need to be completed).

For each ad campaign that you create, you can control how much you're willing to spend on clicks and conversions, which networks and geographical locations you want your ads to show on, and more.

Customized Stepper

If you have been reading the overrides documentation page but you are not confident jumping in, here are examples of how you can change the look of a stepper.

This component uses a customized StepConnector element that changes border color based on the active and completed state.

⚠️ While the material design specification encourages theming, these examples are off the beaten path.

Mobile Stepper

This component implements a compact stepper suitable for a mobile device. See mobile steps for its inspiration.

Mobile Stepper - Text

This is essentially a back/next button positioned correctly. You must implement the textual description yourself, however, an example is provided below for reference.

Mobile Stepper - Text with Carousel effect

This demo is very similar to the previous, the difference is the usage of react-swipeable-views to make the transition of steps.

Mobile Stepper - Dots

Use dots when the number of steps isn’t large.

Mobile Stepper - Progress

Use a progress bar when there are many steps, or if there are steps that need to be inserted during the process (based on responses to earlier steps).
