Can't Edit an Existing Form with CSS Builder

Can't Edit an Existing Form with CSS Builder


I am trying to "integrate" the nice features of CSS Form Builder with some features that I can only get with some Dreamweaver Spry validations.

My 1st approach was to use CSS Form Builder to edit an existing form. Using CSS Form Builder I added to the existing form a new Line at the bottom with a CAPTCH and a Security Question. When the Wizard generated the form it produced the attached error message stating that it needed to alter a locked section of code and couldn't. The existing form being edited was on a page that was based upon a Dreamweaver Template and also, the form was on a Spry Tabbed panel. I don't know if either of these factors blocked the wizard.

My 2nd approach was to first build a new form in CSS Form Builder in a new (standalone) .php file. This new file was able to replicate some but not all of the Spry validation features I had built in the original form. That form was generated OK but now it's not clear how I can replicate some of the Spry Validation features that I couldn't specify in CSS Form Builder.

For example, in the original/existing form I had used the "Spry Validation Confirm" to confirm that a 2nd entry of an Email address matched the 1st entry of the address. As another example, I had a Spry Textarea that used the Spry option to dynamically display the number of available characters remaining to be typed relative to a max number of characters I had specified.

If I, say, select the Textarea and then try to apply Spry Validation Textarea I get the error "You cannot insert this widget into a validation widget". I get the same error if I select the 2nd Email address field and try to apply "Spry Validation Confirm".

So, my question is, how can I construct a form that combines both the features supplied by CSS Form Builder but that also uses some additional Spry Validation that CSS Form Builder doesn't offer?

Thank you.
