public class Assistant : Window, Accessible, Buildable, ConstraintTarget, Native, Root, ShortcutManager

`GtkAssistant` is used to represent a complex as a series of steps.

![An example GtkAssistant](assistant.png)

Each step consists of one or more pages. `GtkAssistant` guides the user through the pages, and controls the page flow to collect the data needed for the operation.

`GtkAssistant` handles which buttons to show and to make sensitive based on page sequence knowledge and the [enum@Gtk.AssistantPageType] of each page in addition to state information like the *completed* and *committed* page statuses.

If you have a case that doesn’t quite fit in `GtkAssistant`s way of handling buttons, you can use the gtk_assistant_page_custom page type and handle buttons yourself.

`GtkAssistant` maintains a `GtkAssistantPage` object for each added child, which holds additional per-child properties. You obtain the `GtkAssistantPage` for a child with [method@Gtk.Assistant.get_page].

GtkAssistant as GtkBuildable

The `GtkAssistant` implementation of the `GtkBuildable` interface exposes the action_area as internal children with the name “action_area”.

To add pages to an assistant in `GtkBuilder`, simply add it as a child to the `GtkAssistant` object. If you need to set per-object properties, create a `GtkAssistantPage` object explicitly, and set the child widget as a property on it.

CSS nodes

`GtkAssistant` has a single CSS node with the name window and style class .assistant.
