    Drag and drop form builder

      Does anyone use a drag-and-drop form builder that they could recommend? I've looked at a couple such as Coffee Cup which looks pretty good but is a bit pricey.

          I've never needed one.  IMO, forms -- especially HTML5 forms -- are not that difficult to make.

          If you have built a few forms, it's usually just a matter of copying & pasting existing code into your new pages and adjusting a few field input names and script variables. 

           

          The last time I looked at Coffee Cup's Form Builder, it produced Flash forms *yuck*.  I don't know if it still does.

            Coffee cup is brilliant and worth every penny. Started using it when adobe dropped spry. No flash there at all Nancy that I know of. Easy to use, responsive and even easier to edit definitely worth the bucks. You don't need  any server side code either. So easy.

              Yes, standard contact forms are easy, but more extensive forms can be tedious. Additionally, I've had issues with the Spry validation features in DW.

               

              My main gripe is that if I create forms in Joomla or Wordpress I know I can use a drag-and-drop extension that is both reliable and fast. If I have problems or want to further modify, then  I can dive into the code if I want to.

               

              If it is standard for these CMS, I don't understand why this can't become a standard feature in DW.
