Form Toolkit vs. Form Builder and Datepicker customization

Form Toolkit vs. Form Builder and Datepicker customization

I am a bit puzzled... are you promoting Form Toolkit as an option for customizing CSS Form Builder?

I really like the features offered for customizing Captcha and Datepicker in the Toolkit but adding Captcha and Datepicker to forms using Form Builder is a lot quicker. Once I add a Captcha and Datepicker field using Form Builder - can they then be customized using the Toolkit or do I have to add them using the Toolkit? Can custom settings for both be saved in the Form Builder presets? Please tell me how these 2 extensions can be integrated for easier use.

I would like to be able to change the color scheme of the Datepicker (with the Form Builder extension) but have no idea how to go about it. Would you please steer me in the right direction??

It would be great if you could come up with a version of Form Builder allowing for customization of the Captcha and Datepicker fields without having to use an add-on that makes the overall use more complicated.

Form Builder and Form Toolkit are 2 separate tools for 2 separate use cases

Form Builder should be used if you want a tool to create the forms for you.

Form Toolkit should be used if you would prefer to create the forms manually and then add validation to it yourself.

With Form Builder, you can customize the look of the datepicker elements by clicking the Customize CSS button on the initial form builder screen.

In the design editor, Select "Form Elements" from the initial select list, the select "Datepicker" from the secondary select list.

this will open the screen that allows you to customize the look of your datepicker elements in the form.
