Form Builder Feature Questions - Pre/Post Processing & PayPal

Recommended Posts

Hi Ryan and All,

I've been using a Perl script called "SimpleForm" that I've written and updated over the years. One reason I like it is because I created pre-processing and post-processing functions that allowed me to add any type of custom code I wanted to do, either before the data was processed as a submit, or afterwards.

However, it doesn't fit into the PW framework, since it's in Perl. Thus, I'm exploring buying Form Builder, but in reading the feature list, I couldn't quite get whether it allows this type of totally customizable, code-able pre and post processing.

I might have missed that, but can someone let me know if Form builder has that functionality?

Also, I want to be able to collect and save data, then send someone to the free PayPal site, and then have the person return to a PW page where the form data can be updated "as paid." Has that been done with Form Builder?

Thanks!

Peter

FormBuilder does allow this by hooking into it. Check this blog post, it gives a hook reference for FormBuilder.

Sounds to me that some hook work could help solve this too.
