Web form building software

Hi Guys,

Does anyone know of any software that will allow me to visually build web forms so that I can cut and paste the code into my webpages.  Whilst I know how to do this in HTML many of the forms I have to build are very long and writing validating scripts etc is very time consuming.  If possible the software should have the following features:

1. Forms need to run on UNIX servers
2. Come supplied with form processing scripts
3. Ability to use all standard html form features (textbox, text area, checkbox etc)
4. Creates Validation scripts so that I can cust and paste the code into my web page
5. Forms over multiple pages
6. Support for a drop down calendar would be very nice
7. Option to store data in an MySQL database would also be nice.
8. Handle attachements


Many thanks in advance.

Try this: http://www.google.com/search?hl=en&q=Web+form+building+software

What languages can you apply?  Javascript, PHP, ASP...

Hi CoolATIGuy,

It needs to be PHP or Javascript but not ASP.

I have tried many Google searches but the tools I find are either ASP or are hosted.  I'm just thinking that someone must have come up with a PHP version.

There is one at q-d.com but this is out of the arc and is slower to use than coding.

Check out: http://www.hotscripts.com/PHP/Scripts_and_Programs/Form_Processors/index.html - I found on similar to what you wanted, but it was for ASP.

Transaction-level recovery for Oracle database

Veeam Explore for Oracle delivers low RTOs and RPOs with agentless transaction log backup and transaction-level recovery of Oracle databases. You can restore the database to a precise point in time, even to a specific transaction.

Thanks for that Corey.  

There are some very good systems there but they all require you to install massive amounts of scripts onto the clients webserver.  Most of these scripts are there to produce the forms and not process them.

I would really like something that can run on my windows xp computer that will allow me to create the forms so that I can then paste the HTML / Javascript into my web page and upload any required scripts to my clients website.

Surely someone has written such an app.

phpForms was very good in that it gave you the code to put into your site etc. but the gut wanted an astronomical amount of money for an unlimited license. :(

You might look at http://www.hkvstore.com/phpmaker/ - it sounds like that is what you desire?

Sorry, this creates php based on mySql tables allowing the user to edit the data.

A few other links:
http://www.handyarchive.com/free/php---asp-form-maker/
http://www.softpedia.com/get/Internet/WEB-Design/HTML-Editors/PHPMaker.shtml - but this one also seems to want mySQL DB.  

Or maybe even: http://www.email-form.com/ - looks like that mySQL option is there

After spending many hours looking through all the available scripts I opted for one by Allibsus ( http://www.allibsus.com ) which I located at http://www.hotscripts.com/PHP/Scripts_and_Programs/Form_Processors/index.html 

Their script is very powerfull and does most of what I needed (although not supplied with a form designer).  

Thanks for your help guys
