TCPmaker : Visual Tour    Sending Messages to Screen Controls  

The picture below shows the Master Template we will use for this project.  All the TCPmaker Controls and Background Elements that you see here will be reproduced on every one of the 5 pages of our TCPmaker Pro multi-page layout.

The navigation panel on the left side of the "stage" contains buttons whose g properties will transport us directly to one of these five pages.  This change of page happens in the PC browser, normally without any need to send any message to or from our device, but we'll be doing something special with these buttons that we'll explain presently.

Also, notice the buttons on the lower right corner of our layout, labeled "Back" and "Next". We'll use these in a special way, to get the effect of a "wizard" that steps through the pages in our layout, moving forward or backward in the page sequence.
