Does Form Designer replace Web Form Builder 2.5 & 2.9, and does it do everything that Web Form Builder does?

No, at this time it's only the front end. You have to develop your own validation and php scripts.
I can't hear what I'm looking at.
It's easy to overlook something you're not looking for.

Thanks Eric. Do you know if replacement is in the planning? I.E.- I will purchase at the Beta price if it's eventually supposed to replace Web Form Builder...... but if not, I don't know if I can justify buying this.

Eric, I just received this response from Support on this question. A little disappointing but saves me some money.

'Form Builder and Form Designer are totally different apps.

Let me put it like this: with Form Designer it is the start of the journey towards a totally reimagined new Web Form app :)

Unlike Form Builder, the Form Designer is for crafting frontend designs only. The backend scripts are not included in the Form Designer. However, this app makes it easier to work with custom scripts. "

First form with the new Form Designer.

Then we need a well written tutorial on where to find the custom scripts, and how to use them.

Does anyone using Form Designer know if once you design a front end for a form know if you can then open that in Form Builder to finish it so that you also have the back end?
