npm install react-step-wizard

Import Component

import StepWizard from 'react-step-wizard';

JSX Syntax

Simply create a wrapper with <StepWizard></StepWizard> and each child component will be treated as an individual step.

  <Step1 />
  <Step2 />
  <Step5 />
  <WhateverComponentName />


I wanted this step wizard to be as flexible as possible so each child has access to the StepWizard functions via this.props

For example:

  <!-- Variables -->
  <h2>Step {this.props.currentStep}</h2>
  <p>Total Steps: {this.props.totalSteps}</p>
  <p>Is Active: {this.props.isActive}</p>
  <!-- Functions -->
  <p><button onClick={this.props.previousStep}>Previous Step</button></p>
  <p><button onClick={this.props.nextStep}>Next Step</button></p>
  <p><button onClick={()=>this.props.goToStep(2)}>Step 2</button></p>
  <p><button onClick={this.props.firstStep}>First Step</button></p>
  <p><button onClick={this.props.lastStep}>Last Step</button></p>

User-Defined Props

Prop Data Type Default Description
hashKey string step{n} Prop on child component to use when updating URL hash. Corresponds with isHashEnabled.
initialStep integer 1
isHashEnabled bool false Persists the current step in the URL (hash)
isLazyMount boolean false Only mounts the child component when isActive is true
nav node Create a custom navigation component to include in the wizard
onStepChange function Callback for step change
transitions object CSS classes for transitioning between steps

Props Accessible On Each Child (Step) Component

Prop Data Type Parameters
isActive boolean
currentStep integer
totalSteps integer
firstStep function
lastStep function
nextStep function
previousStep function
goToStep function integer : goToStep(3)


If you wish to include a navigation in your wizard you have the flexibility to create one however you want. All the props available to the steps will also be provided to your nav component.

Position: By default the nav will be added to the top. If you want it on the bottom I suggest adding a class to the StepWizard component with flex-direction: column-reverse. That's just one solution.

Be sure to pass your component in JSX syntax like this:

import CoolNav from './CoolNav';

<StepWizard nav={<CoolNav />}>...</StepWizard>


The default transitions are using CSS taken from animate.css. You can override the transitions by passing in custom CSS classes to the transitions prop in <StepWizard>.

let custom = {
  enterRight: 'your custom css transition classes',
  enterLeft : 'your custom css transition classes',
  exitRight : 'your custom css transition classes',
  exitLeft  : 'your custom css transition classes'
<StepWizard transitions={custom}>...</StepWizard>

Initial Step

The order of your steps in JSX will be loaded in the same order in the browser. However, you may specify which step to start on page load by using the initialStep prop. It accepts a numeric value corresponding to the step order.

<StepWizard initialStep={3}>...</StepWizard>

Persist Step In URL

An example of how isHashEnabled and hashKey work together:

<StepWizard isHashEnabled={true}>
  <BasicInfo hashKey={'basic'} /> // https://domain.com/#basic
  <ContactInfo hashKey={'contact'} /> // https://domain.com/#contact
  <TermsConditions /> // https://domain.com/#step3

As you can see, the hashKey corresponds with the url hash and will be updated when the step becomes active. The hashKey defaults to step{n}. If isHashEnabled is false then the url hash, or hashKey, will not be used.
