Scripts are everywhere. As long as you use the right tool for the right job, scripts are short, fast and effective. There is one area where they usually lack: user interactivity. It is difficult to create a good user interface in most script languages.

Now there is the Wizard's Apprentice. It will allow you to ask questions from a script file, using Windows dialog boxes in the so-called Wizard style: large dialogs asking one question at a time, with a Back button, a Next button and a Cancel button. Using a well-described and portable API you can create a wealth of commonly used dialog controls. With a few common scripting techniques, the Wizard's Apprentice will allow you to create wizards with style!
