It causes full page postback whenever you click on Previous or Next button. This behavior may not pose much problem if a wizard has only a few steps. However, if a wizard has many steps and each step accepts many entries then full page postback can deteriorate the user experience. To overcome this shortcoming you can add Ajax to the wizard so that only the form is posted to the server. In this part of the series you will convert the application developed in Part 1 to use Ajax.

However, at times you may need to create and fill a model programmatically. In such cases, although the model properties are decorated with data annotation validators, they won't validate the data because they are not invoked at all. Luckily, ASP.NET MVC allows you to validate a model object via code. This article shows how.
