Steps also known as Stepper, is an indicator for the steps in a workflow. Layout of steps component is optimized for responsive design.

import { Steps } from 'primereact/steps';

Steps requires a collection of menuitems as its model.

<Steps model={items} />

Steps can be controlled programmatically using activeIndex property.

<Steps model={items} />

Steps is linear by default to enforce completion of a previus step to proceed, set readOnly as false for non-linear mode.

<Steps readOnly model={items} />

In order to add interactivity to the component, disable readOnly and use a binding to activeIndex along with onSelect to control the Steps.

<Toast ref={toast}></Toast>
<Steps model={items} activeIndex={activeIndex} onSelect={(e) => setActiveIndex(e.index)} readOnly={false} />

Steps offers item customization with the items template property that receives the item instance and returns an element.

<Steps model={items} activeIndex={activeIndex} readOnly={false} className="m-2 pt-4" />

Screen Reader

Steps component uses the nav element and since any attribute is passed to the root implicitly aria-labelledby or aria-label can be used to describe the component. Inside an ordered list is used where the current step item defines aria-current as "step".
