CSS FB and DA or DA and CSS FB?

I am about to start building a website that heavily depends on forms and databases....

I have used CSS Form Builder and Data Assist and like both products, but I hate trying to combine them especially when dropdown menus are used...

So, am I better to start with DA and then convert using CSS FB and go through all of the nightmares with regard to dropdowns

or

create my form using the CSS Form Builder and then add lots of DA server behaviours to each of the form fields..

Thoughts and suggestions please

I think you should definitely go with the second option, (form builder -> DA), because currently if you have a dynamic drop down list with DA and tries to use Form builder, it will not populate the list correctly (as you might have experienced).

Thanks for your reply.

Thats exactly the problem that I have been getting, so I will do as you suggested.

Do you have any idea when the next version of CSS Form builder will be released that will address this issue?

I'm not entirely sure on a time line for the next release, but If the issues was fixed prior to a release we might send a beta build that contain the fix to this issue.
