I agree with Eric, they should add the back end scripts, validation and conditionals, I should have visited this Forum before buying the beta version of Form Designer :(


+1 I agree with you guys here. I have said it since day one. I would love to see these scripts added into this app, its really the only thing stopping me from buying it.

Yes, it makes perfect sense to combine these 2 products into a single solution. The design flexibility of Forms Designer with the code generation of WFB, along with a robust set of themes. Please. Would save users tons of time going back and forth.

Would be nice to create option and checkbox lists that can be quickly added as we currently can in WFB. For example, being able to click a button to add all 50 states to an option list would be very convenient. Let us create text files or css files that have the options already listed so that we can just click a button, select the file, and the options are created.

Just out of curiosity, which controls are you looking for?

I will echo what others have said...Please combine Web Form Builder and Form Designer into one product. All of the other CoffeeCup software that I have purchased integrate easily with each other-I was expecting the same with Form Designer.

I agree with many on here. It seems form designer has been built for producing nice forms and it does. However it now appears as an afterthought of how the processing scripts should be attached and a tutorial has been produced.
However it is clear that the method provided is illogical, repetitive and time consuming.

The processing script should be produced from within the form designer program and not have to build two forms and make sure the names are the same etc. Totally inefficient and lack forethought.

So like many processing scripts within form designer so only one form has to be produced.

I've given up on the processing scripts and started rolling my own- I found it too painful getting them working on a non-S-Drive site anyway. But when do we get basics like:

1. Captcha
2. Media: Audio, Video, Picture slides.
3. Field Validation & Computation
4. Vertical & Horizontal Tab
5. Table & Grid
6. Calendar & Date
7. Mime Email
8. Encryption
9. Credit Card Validation
10. State Abbreviation
11. Star rating
12. Toggle
13. Geolocation

This was mentioned back in May last year by Budhi!

I love CoffeeCup software BUT I am beginning to get fatigued with the big announcements about a new product, loyal customers fund their development by getting out their credit cards for a beta then you run out of steam - only to come out with another new shiny thing a few months later that's "even better" and available cheaply for the beta.

Come on finish something please! There's so much promise in the products but I'm starting to shop around.

Have something to add? We’d love to hear it!
