Restrict going back to previous step : wizard

I have a wizard page with 2 steps. Once the user completes step1 and moves to step2, I would like to restrict the user going back to step1 again. Please help me if there is any way to implement this?

Thanks in advance.

You could use something like the following javascript functions:

findButtonByActionID("<action id of button>");

var buttonToDisable = findButtonByActionID("PJL_wizard_previous");

buttonToDisable.disable();

Some common action id's of buttons:

PJL_wizard_apply

PJL_wizard_next

PJL_wizard_ok

PJL_wizard_previous

These can be found in codebase/config/actions/actions.xml and other files in the same directory.

Another possibility would be to configure step 2 with custom buttons and not have a back or previous button. Also see the following 2 articles:
