Integration with Other Components

One more major enhancement in this release is integration with dhtmlxCombo, dhtmlxCalendar, dhtmlxEditor, and dhtmlxColorPicker. Adding a popup calendar, combo box with autocomplete, or simple text editor to your web forms is not a problem anymore. All these components can be easily attached to the form fields with minimum of coding.

Item Template

The updated dhtmlxForm offers the ability to create your own templates for the form items and present custom content as a value of the input field (link, image, or any HTML).

Other new features include a file upload input field and the ability to set parameters for a group of items. So, if you need a better tool for online form creation, download the updated dhtmlxForm and add interactive, Ajax-enabled web forms to your web site or application.
