Here's what I have to do:

I have a list of items called Projects, and for this I have developed a custom display form called DisplayProject.aspx, and a custom State Machine Workflow. I have to put a button on the DisplayProject.aspx page that will advance the workflow to the next state. Also, State is an attribute of the Project entity.

I am quite new to SharePoint Development and most of the examples I find online regarding State Machine Workflows are specific document approval workflows. How can I design such a page, and how can I design such a workflow?

Any help will be highly appreciated.
