Using Uni-Form, which is a standards-based form template, even web users with only basic knowledge of these technologies can get nice looking, well structured, highly customizable, semantic, accessible and usable forms.

Users can choose between most common form layouts by simply assigning a css class to the fieldset element in order to get a different layout of the form controls your design requires.

Within the Uni-Form community, there are some extensions built too, like a Prototype one.

Probably, most of us upload photos to flickr via e-mail or once used Craigslist & auto-generated temporary e-mails of it for the listings.

If you want to build a similar e-mail to http process, there is a web service named Email2HTTP, which turns incoming email into easy-to-handle HTTP POST requests.

E-mail To Content

How does it work?

Email2HTTP works by acting as the mail server for your domain. When email arrives that matches one of your filters, it is posted to your chosen URL as if it were coming from a form on a web page. The attachments are sent as if they are file uploads on that form.

Who is it for?

Email2HTTP is for web developers who need to accept email in their web applications, but do not want to maintain their own mail servers & software.

P.S. Email2HTTP is now in the beta phase & totally free. In the future, besides the paid plans, a free plan will also be provided.

Dynamic form autocomplete code, named TextboxList, is built on Mootools javascript framework and works just like the Facebook form inputs that are very functional.

Dynamic Form Autocomplete

TextboxList works by caching all the results from a JSON Request and feeding them to the autocompleter object. When an item is added as a box, it’ removed from the feed array, and when the box is disposed it’s added back, so that it becomes available in the list when the user types.

This dynamic form autocomplete solution has a "without autocomplete" version that can be found here.

Styling checkboxes & radio buttons to give them a look other than standard forms can be a key to impress site visitors.

Using FancyForm, which is a powerful checkbox replacement script used to provide the ultimate flexibility in changing the appearance and function of HTML form elements, gives very nice looking form outputs.

FancyForm is very quick to setup (only two lines of markup needed), extendible and will degrade if viewed from an older browser.

P.S. FancyForm uses the ultra-lightweight Mootools JavaScript framework (Mootools is included with the download).

This Asp.Net Ajax Auto-Complete Control which is created by Matt Berseth works similar to Google Suggest.
