Example of creating an alternative custom navigation

External navigation: Prev Next Complete
Go to page directly without validation:


function doOnCurrentPageChanged(survey) {
    document.getElementById('pageSelector').value = survey.currentPageNo;
    document.getElementById('surveyPrev').style.display = !survey.isFirstPage ? "inline" : "none";
    document.getElementById('surveyNext').style.display = !survey.isLastPage ? "inline" : "none";
    document.getElementById('surveyComplete').style.display = survey.isLastPage ? "inline" : "none";
    document.getElementById('surveyProgress').innerText = "Page " + (survey.currentPageNo + 1) + " of " + survey.visiblePageCount + ".";
    if(document.getElementById('surveyPageNo')) document.getElementById('surveyPageNo').value = survey.currentPageNo;
function setupPageSelector(survey) {
  var selector = document.getElementById('pageSelector');
  for(var i = 0; i < survey.visiblePages.length; i ++) {
    var option = document.createElement("option");
    option.value = i;
    option.text = "Page " + (i + 1);
                var json = { 
    title: "Software developer survey.",
    pages: [
        { title: "What operating system do you use?",
            questions: [
                {type:"checkbox", name:"opSystem", title: "OS", hasOther: true, isRequired: true, 
                    choices:["Windows", "Linux", "Macintosh OSX"]}
        {   title: "What language(s) are you currently using?",
            questions: [
            {type:"checkbox", name:"langs",title:"Please select from the list",
                 colCount: 4, isRequired: true,
                choices:["Javascript", "Java", "Python", "CSS", "PHP", "Ruby", "C++", "C", 
                    "Shell", "C#", "Objective-C", "R", "VimL", "Go", "Perl", "CoffeeScript",

                window.survey = new Survey.Model(json);
            survey.onComplete.add(function(sender) {
            document.querySelector('#surveyResult').textContent =
            "Result JSON:\n" + JSON.stringify(, null, 3);
survey.showTitle = false;
            <Survey.Survey model={survey}  onCurrentPageChanged={doOnCurrentPageChanged} />, document.getElementById("surveyElement"));

Use onCurrentPageChanged event to update it after the current page is changed.

If you use knockout, please use onRedered event to initialized your custom navigation elements.

survey.onCurrentPageChanged.add(function (sender, options) {
    var survey = sender;
    var oldCurrentPage = options.oldCurrentPage;
    var newCurrentPage = options.newCurrentPage;
    //Your code
//Requires for knockout platoform only
survey.onRendered.add(function (sender) {
    var survey = sender;
    //Your code


Get/set the current page No:

from 0 to visible page count - 1.
survey.currentPageNo = yourValue;

Page Prev Text:

survey.pagePrevText = yourValue;

survey.pageNextText = yourValue;

survey.completeText = yourValue;

survey.showNavigationButtons = yourValue;
