Form Builder Working with WA Extension Generated Forms

Form Builder Working with WA Extension Generated Forms

I have been using Security Assist to create my Login & Registration pages. From there, almost everything is complete except all I want to do with the registration page is add a captcha. When I open FB to just add the captcha, I basically have to rename each form component label again. I already went through this step in SA and now FB is making me do it again. Kind of like reinventing the wheel, don't you think? Also, why doesn't CSS FB inherit all the form properties (i.e. Form name, form component label names...etc) that were already created by other WA products (i.e. DataAssist, Security Assist & eCart)? When using FB to edit one of WA's existing forms, it changes the previous form name to a Default_Custom...bla..bla, table name...etc and then I get an (!) mark next to the server behaviour that SA created.

When you use CSS Form Builder to update an existing form it will recreate the form based on the settings that you have chosen. If you would like to just add captcha to your form you might be able to make use of a technique that I have seen others post about. The idea is to create a new form with the CAPTCHA added to it then transfer this to your existing form. This would allow you to leave your forms in their default state and just add to them rather than modifying them with Form Builder.

You would just need to make sure that you transfer the captcha potion of the form including the image and input then also add in the validation code. If the only think in the form that you create is the captcha it would be easier to work with.
