I would like to setup a form builder for our customers to build their own forms. I noticed that a lot of people are mentioning something about doing it with php, but that isn't an option for us. We are currently building our forms in html and are referring to the same general ColdFusion processing script (action = "xyz.cfm") on all forms. Ideally we will need html built that will include a some default elements (<form> and some hidden inputs needed by processing script).

Please let me know what options i have.

    Hi Edgar,

    I would recommend downloading the Form Builder. It generates HTML and PHP. I know you said that you can't use PHP but I think it would be a great example to show you how all the pieces would need to be constructed.

    Basically, it includes a Data Definition that allows people to create customized form fields. Then we have a velocity format that actually creates the html form elements and the php processing instructions. I would think you may be able to translate the PHP into Coldfusion.

    I hope this information helps!
