Navigational functionality is abstracted from user interface pages associated with a wizard and allocated to a navigation module. The navigation module provides a hierarchical tree of nodes representative of the user interface pages in the wizard. In operation, a token is transmitted from a user interface page to the navigation module when a user activates a user interface control within the user interface pages. The token instructs the navigation module to traverse the hierarchical tree to determine a successor page to present to the user, such as a next user interface page, a previous user interface page, a user interface page defining a selected branch, and so on. Abstracting navigational information from individual user interface pages is advantageous because it simplifies the design and modification of user interface pages, as well as promotes the modularity and portability of the user interface pages.
