Change Format of Form

Change Format of Form

I need to recreate this form:

renew.htm

How can I create the form with this formatting (colors, layout, etc). I am mainly just talking about the top part with the table and left and right different color columns.

Thanks

By copying the source code from the page as per zip. (Or you could spend a day or two doing it with CSSFB).

You will still need a mechanism to make the form send, though (a different form action="")

So basically follow the "Modify an existing form" instead of trying to create a new one from scratch. I have no problem creating it over, I know how...I just can't figure out how to get the form elements into different table cells so I can apply different background colors to it. But i guess it would be more logical just to modify one I already made before (it lost functionality somehow with the old php mail method).

CSS Form Builder isn't designed to work with tables; it is primarily a tool for designing css built forms. (hence the name!).

You could conceivably (once a form has been created) house some of the elements in a table of your own design, but really there would be no point.

If you want to have a form that looks like the example you gave, and you want it to made in tables format, then the one from the page you referenced and the code in the zip I posted will give you that layout, with the colours and styles too.

You just need to add the whole table to a page, and as the styles are all inline, you are good to go (from a design point of view).

It might be worth your while - as you have CSSFB - giving it a spin to see what that will come up with. But if you want one like you linked to, CSSFB isn't really going to do it.

Good time to make the switch to css forms!

You would still in either scenario have to add the functionality to send the form using whatever method you like.
