jqForm and jqForm Visual Builder

October 24th, 2011 Leave a comment Go to comments

Hello All,

As you know, in addition to our open-source jqGrid project, we ship a number of different commercial components for PHP, ASP.NET MVC and WebForms. Today we’d like to share with you our latest product – jqForm + jqFormBuilder for PHP. It is a very powerful form-builder solution that beats what currently exists on the market and integrates flawlessly in all PHP based application. This means that you can embed jqForm and our form builder interface in your WordPress/Joomla/Drupal/Custom PHP site and offer this functionality to your end-users.
As usual, our client-side code is based on jQuery, our theming is jQuery UI ThemeRoller based – typically everything that you’d come to expect from us after all those years. We are priced very competitively and we do hope you check out our demos here:

Various forms

This is a short video of the functionality of our Form Builder product.

Any questions – welcome. Happy coding.

    What about license?

    Does this come with the WordPress plugin functionality already existing or do we need to self integrate? What about the rest of your suites?

    @Aoirthoir An Broc
    Would also like to know the cost for this?

    @Aoirthoir – we are currently working on a WordPress plugin for the form builder, yes. Code is pure HTML/JS/CSS + PHP backend, so any PHP based engine will work, but we will of course release a WordPress module based on their plugin architecture

    @Aoirthoir & @IzumeRoot – we are currently updating our pricing page and will follow-up with a link to our pricing/licensing in a few hours. Licensing in this market (what competition does) is very confusing and we intend to simplify this by introducing “per developer” licenses – meaning you buy once and then use in any number of sites you need, for unlimited time, for unlimited forms.

    Prices have been finalized for the initial release – $199 per developer for Standard edition and $249 for Subscription edition.

    The terms “per developer”, “standard” and “subscription” are all described in details in our licensing page here:


    jqForm will also be available in our PHP Suite which also includes jqGrid for PHP, jqChart for PHP, jqTreeGrid for PHP, jqAutoComplete, jqDatePicker and jqScheduler for a grand total of $450 for Standard and $599 for Subscription – so this might be the better deal for you.

    Just to let you know if this raises any questions – the open source jqGrid product as shipped here will remain open source and MIT licensed for the foreseeable future – no changes here. jqGrid for PHP adds the CRUD PHP layers, PDF/Excel exports and additional code and time saving features and comes at a price, but the product as shipped here will be shipped as we shipped it for all those years.

    I have subscription to .net web forms suite. Interested if this will be available under .net as well. If not you should publish detailed guidelines on how it can be used under .net. Overall excited about this app.

    Yes, sure, we are just curious how viable this is for the ASP.NET platform. We investigated the market a lot and there is a lot of demand for WordPress and PHP platforms, but for ASP.NET – do you think this is viable too? As a standalone tool or as an embedded tool in a CMS like DotNetNuke?

    Please, share your feedback – we really want to see where this is going.

    @Rumen Stankov (Trirand)

    Thank you. Yes I think I would be most interested in the entire kit and kaboodle.

    Will the WordPress plugin include the ability to work with all of the other items in the suite as well? Using the MySQLi library or even PDO, will this support Stored procs and prepared statements?

    By the way the video has no sound. But it is a very good walk through. I would highly recommend yous guys doing videos for this. Perhaps on a monthly/yearly subscription like WPMUDev does. Then if we installed it as a plugin for clients they could link to unbranded videos. Though I doubt I will be giving them that access myself.

    As to a WP plugin, one of the key components is that it must be accessible from a front end for WP. Most of the form plugins handle everything from the dashboard, for viewing data. What if I want to have people add their baseball cards to my collection? I’d not want them to have that kind of access. Plus it allows for creating apps.

    Exporting forms, apps and so on would be critical. Either way as soon as it is ready I am eager to buy. I would really like the WP plugin of course:D

    kind Regards and thanks for answering the questions. This is a product Ive been dreaming about for a long time.

    Hi! I would like to clarify about the licensing? if i buy a single developer license, would i still have to pay yearly? and if i deploy it to my projects will it expire after a year?
