Hi i already posted this on the custom form module discussion in codeplex , but i didn't get any answer yet . Please if somebody can help it would be much appreciated.

I want to create some advanced forms with dropdowns and radiobutton list checkbox .... and i want to know what would be the best way to create it . I have to create multiple different custom forms.

I also Tried oForm and contact they seems to be too limited ...



I'am looking to create some advanced forms with Orchard . And i will have multiple forms in my website so i don't want to create a module for each form.

So i tried looking at some existing modules like oform and custom Form .

So for the Custom Forms i wanted to add some validation but i was not able to make it.

I also want to have a dropdownlist with some values . I just want to know if it's possible to create this with this module.

Sure. Use an enumeration field, or a taxonomy field.

And then use the Forms API? Or would you still need to write a custom controller to handle the postback of the form?

No, the custom form module.
