Any issues I had was due to my platform setup not due to the builder itself. But [SENSITIVE CONTENT HIDDEN] was very helpful when trying to resolve the issues.

Great for Data Entry and Processing

I built a Horse Racing results and competition system purely for my own use with my family and it has worked for two years with hardly any problems. These problems have actually been my fault and not the software . I have used several of the form types to run my system but many are not used as they did not suit the workflow of my system. Neverless the small price that I paid for this software means that the effort in writing my system has been greatly reduced because the form building is done for me

Pros

The easy to use choices for various form types and styles all of which have good examples to base your design on. The documentation is very well laid out and contains a lot of information that is a great help. The author is very good at responding to questions and help in getting started or wanting to do something that is slightly different from the examples

Cons

This is not really a bad point in my view but others may see it. The software has a lot of different choices for a form that you can possibly use so actually making the correct choice could be a bit more difficult because of this.

Reasons for Choosing PHP Form Builder

I looked at the demo on this product and instantly saw that it had everything that I needed to build my system . Others were either more expensive or limited in their capabilities or did not have much in the way of a good demo . In my opinion it is better to see something actually working rather than just reading about it or seeing screenshots.

Reasons for Switching to PHP Form Builder

The spreadsheet system was good but it took longer to input the data for each race meeting and did not have a good workflow as of course there are limitations in spreadsheet software. Having MAMP pro I had a server system on my MACBOOK so i saw that by using MYSQL and PHP I could enhance my system greatly and make data entry a shorter task time by using type ahead selections and the other sorts of forms this product has. I have recently updated some things for this year and I have had to spend less time in doing this because the added data was easy to put onto the forms I use.

Form builder

Great for simple form production. Would be very helpful to have customisation docs - or even a higher priced version for more precise requirements

Pros

Amazingly user friendly. Mature presentation, high attention to detail

Cons

As a developer I would like to feel confident that that of being able to customize forms to meet client demands, without hitting glass

Reasons for Choosing PHP Form Builder

Simple to set up. Would really appreciate some answers on customisation

Powerful PHP Form Builder

The overall experience has been great. It has been used for 99% of the forms that we have on our site. Once we learned how to use the form builder object and its boundaries, it Helped us quickly create uniform looking UIs with predictable results. Customer support has always been good. Response times are within 24-48 hours.

Pros

• Lots of different plugins, like Tiny MCE, File Upload, Date pickers etc... • Ability to customize the plugins (e.g. adding a caption to the file uploader) • Support for both Bootstrap 3/4 and other popular HTML/CSS frameworks. • Dependency inputs • Ability to create custom validations • Plenty of example forms on the doc site where you can view the source of the form and replicate it.

Cons

• Not easy to to create complex layouts that aren't top-down without injecting the HTML into the form builder. You can't simply print an input field inside your HTML/template. You must build the entire form using the class public methods. • The licensing model and upgrades can be somewhat confusing, but it works. • The navigation in the online docs could be simplified to quickly find what you're looking for.

Thanks for your review. Just a point of clarification: "You can't simply print an input field inside your HTML/template. You must build the entire form using the class public methods." that's not right. PHP Form Builder allows you to create any independent form element and then display it. For example: addInput(...); echo $form->html; ?> This is the method used to add fields dynamically.

My best PHP library

The library has a lot of features and integrates external libraries for form validation, text editing, uploading, checking phone numbers, captcha ... Form development is complex for developers and this library integrates everything you need to simplify this work.

Pros

As a web developer of business tools, I develop a lot of forms. I started using PHP Form Builder when I launched my activity in 2015. The library is constantly evolving to integrate with recent frameworks and by adding new plug-ins. A drag and drop editor is now available with which it is possible to quickly prepare a form. This library saves me incredible time. The developer is attentive and responsive.

Cons

Simplified integration with Git would be more convenient when upgrading.

Reasons for Choosing PHP Form Builder

This library has many features, is simple to set up and is constantly evolving to adapt to new practices and new frameworks.
