    Never done it, but creating a form is not such a difficult task if you are a coder from some time... it could save you some time but I don't there are other great advantages

    I would rather develop it form scratch because it gives you more control over your form (element, style, processes)..

    develop it yourself, will give you more control over it for sure, and will help you learn, plus applying validation would be easier for you too. its really simple.

    you could ofc build a form generator class, that would parse an array of arrays/objects and geneate forms, handle DB interactions and apply client-side and server-side validation :)

    I didn't do it before. So I couldn't help you. But one thinks I really want to share with you. You should do this through any scripting language.

    Seriously, a form isn't that difficult. Just Google for PHP form tutorial or visit W3schools/Nettuts and i'm sure they will have a good explanation for you.

    Why making things complicated when you have a PEAR extension like HTML Quickform2 :), the only problem is that you may know a bit of OOP with PHP.
