Description mscholl 2013-05-15 10:03:27 UTC
Recently we had the need to customize the button text of the default buttons of a wizard (Finish, Cancel, etc.) because e.g. "Create" was more appropriate than "Finish" for a certain action.
I know that there is the possibility to customize these buttons using "branding" as described by Geertjan here

However, doing the customization this way every "Finish" button of every WizardDescriptor instance would be a "Create" button (following the above example) which is at least not appropriate for our use case. Thus it would be nice if the WizardDescriptor provided the feature to somehow alter the default button texts.
