I used Security Asisst to create user registration forms. Now I want to apply basic validation with CSS Form Builder to the existing forms but do not want them reconfiguring the layout with CSS. Form Builder has grouped my fields into "sets" (fieldgroup) and I can not separate them.

CSS Form Builder will not work when I try to go back in to edit - does not preview/recognize the existing form again?

Can you help?

And going forward, what is the best way to apply the same client-side (Spry?) validations that Form Builder does without it affecting the layout?

When you are editing a form with form builder you need to select the form on the page, then in the property inspector you will have options to edit the form, design, or contents. To edit the form that is applied to the page choose to edit the design or the contents.

If all you are trying to do is add in validations to the form you may not need form builder to do so. You can apply spry validations one at a time by selecting the the field in the form and going to Insert > Spry then choose the spry validation type for the element you are working with. Once applied you can configure it in the property inspector.

You can also apply the WebAssist Server or Client side validations by going to Insert > WebAssist > CSS Form Builder and choosing server or client validations.
