Plugin used to Create Multi Step Responsive Form

To create this responsive multistep form, I have used Bootstrap library to create the layout. I have used Jquery Library to used the jquery functions, and finally Jquery Validation Plugin for validating the form. I hope the reader of this article has a fair bit of knowledge with these plugins, if you are a beginners then I would suggest you to go through these plugins first. You can also look at this article How to make custom Ajax form like contact form 7.

Step 1 – Create three divs inside a form tags.

I am not going to narrate how to make a template you can find that in the downloadable script. I am making a 3 steps multi form for this tutorial. In first step it will ask for user name, in second step it will ask for user email address and in third step it will ask for password and confirm password. All these steps are mandatory and properly validated before proceeding to the next step. Check the code how to start building the multi step form below.



 Step 2 – Add fields inside the containers

After you set up three containers, start adding the first field i.e. user name text field inside the form container. It will also have a Next button that will be binded with click event for proceeding to the next step if the field is validated. Make sure you make give a unique class name to the next button (you can use id too).

Just like you have done in step 1, now add a user email text field in step 2. In this container you will have both Previous and Next button that will be binded with the click events. You have to use unique class name for each buttons.

In the final step the container will have password and confirm password field with Previous button and Submit button. I have used a normal buton and binded it with submit form event. You will know it when you come across jquery scripts.

 Step 3 – Validate the form

After you are done with the fields inside the form tag, bind the form with the jquery validator plugin to validate the form. Check the code below to validate the form. It will return true or false on the basis of user input.

 Step 4 – Binding Previous and Next event and form submission

This is the last step involved in the process. You have added class names for the Previous and Next buttons in each container. You just have to bind them with their respective click events.
