FAQ How do I make my wizard appear in the UI?

To make a wizard appear, you need an implementation of the wizard interface called IWizardContainer. The container is responsible for all the presentation outside the pages themselves, including a title area, button bar, and progress indicator. You can implement this interface yourself if you want to embed a wizard into a custom control. JFace provides a default wizard container that is a simple modal dialog: WizardDialog. The following code snippet opens a wizard in a wizard dialog:

   Shell shell = window.getShell();
   AddingWizard wizard = new AddingWizard();
   WizardDialog dialog = new WizardDialog(shell, wizard);
   int result =;
