Is reusing a screen a good thing?

I'm looking at some code written to implement a Wizard.  The code creates a single screen which it changes the contents of as the wizard progresses through its pages.  Is there a benefit to this?

 

Would it not be better to have multiple screens and push the one screen that is current needed on?

 

Are screens destroyed when they are poped?

 

Thanks,

Philippe

Re: Is reusing a screen a good thing?

I wouldn't constrain your Wizard to fit into a specific method of using Screens.  Given that your are unlikely to be doing any heavy processing and will probably spend most of your time waiting for user input, I suspect that there is little benefit in reusing a Screen.
