Guides > HTML Forms Generator

Introducing The HTML Forms Component

The dynamic html forms generator is an excellent tool that will help you build all kinds of html forms in just a few minutes. It will make you forget about all the problems involved with fields alignment, layouts, and server-side validation. For client-side validation the wonderful jquery validator plugin can be used. The component can also use event listeners to process form submission and validation, by using the Event Dispatcher (PtcEvent) component. This class is especially advised to webdesigners and webmasters that are having troubles with html forms. Make sure you check the bottom of the page where you will find the jquery-ui plugins for client-side validation, and to style the form components.

Main Features:

  • Fast & easy to use, for building and validating html forms
  • Completely flexible, can adapt to any web environment
  • Built in validator which supports custom methods
  • Automatic labels and fields alignment
  • No additional css files are needed for the class to work
  • Html templates can be all manipulated
  • Uses the PtcDebug class to debug the building process
