Hi,

I am looking for a commercial PHP Form script that will do the following;

1) Run from my web site (LAMP - PHP 5, MySQL 5)
2) Enable users of the web site to create their own forms (cimple user interface required)
3) Link the form to a MySQL database
4) Include validation and captcha features

I have spoken to a few companies, but most of them do not appear to restrict the licence to single user (ie I can't allow the Users to create their own forms).

Any help or advice would be greatly appreciated :)

Many thanks

What type of forms are we talking about? Questionaires or upload / signup forms?

Are you saying that you want each user to be able to create their own tables assuming each form is a front end to a table. So each user would have a seperate database or would you grant them access to new tables one by one?

I kind of do it the other way around.  let the user create the database spec and then produce the forms using a script that reads the database.

phpMyAdmin can be setup in such a way that each user has access to their own database via a web interface.  Customer must understand that the table requires a primary key.

From my script, the autogenerated php code contains client javascript
(and server side validation in case javascript disabled)
Generator can even support table links.

All of this is based on PHPLIB which I have been using since PHP3.

I am specifically interested in Questionnaire based forms rather than upload/signup forms

Hi - Sorry for the delay.  I have been on holiday for a week.

Example types;

Q: How many years experience do you have of Microsoft Word?  

Response might be one of the following;

1) Text only reply (any entry limited only by length)
2) Drop down (None, <1yr, 1 - 5 yrs, >5yrs)
3) Radio Button (None, <1yr, 1 - 5 yrs, >5yrs)

Q: How would you describe your level of experience on the following; Word, Excel, Powerpoint, Access

Response might be (None, Basic, Comfortable, Expert, Macro User, VBA programmer)

It would be nice to have a branch capability, but this is not essential.
