Q:
What is a Wizard?

A:
When you hear someone refer to a wizard, they aren’t talking about Merlin, Oz, Gandalf, or Dumbledore, although, in a way, there might be a similarity in function.

A Wizard is a tool to guide you through the steps of a process or task by asking a series of questions or presenting options. A Wizard might help you to start up a word processing document, install software, or create a database file for the first time.

Pay no attention to that programmer behind the curtain!
