Getting form builder to work

I am also trying to get Form Builder to work after naively thinking it would work by itself. I am now probably about 60% there. This is as far as I have got. To use form bulder you will need to have IIS and PHP installed on your computer or else the form will not show correctly in Dreamweaver when looked at in LiveView. This is one of the few processes that is well documented by WA and you will find it as a PDF on the WA site if you search for Preparing your sytem for Dynamic development. I followed the instructions and it worked. Once you have that set up you can try creating a form, I suggest that you do it on a blank page called email.php or similar. The standard form that is produced is far to big but you can alter this by clicking on edit in Choose a Design, this will allow you to change the size of the form and other details. Once you have got your form you will need to use Universal Email to get it it send back the information. This is about as far as I have got but my understanding is that UE takes the information from the form and formats it so that it is sent back to you in a readable manner. There are a number of online videos that go through the process, though as with all WA documentation they leave out chunks of required information. I hope over the next few days to actually get it to work for me.

Best of luck
