Create A GF Form Programmitcaly and Integrate An Events Plugin

  1. I'm trying to replicate this form here http://laverne.edu/form/information-session/ which uses Google calendar to show upcoming events. It's in effect an event registration form. The problem is that it needs to be a standalone form, it can't be on an event detail page or anything like that, it just needs to be on a simple page template.

    I'm wondering if it's wise to do this. I want to create the form programmatically using the resources provide by Gravity Forms, and within that form, I would like to query events and have them show up to the user depending on some conditional logic.

    Could this setup work? I'm not afraid to code it, I just don't want to get stuck somewhere where I can't get integration to work. I'm hoping that GF is open enough for quite a bit of tweaking.

  3. I have a similar thing I'm about to try, and I found your post googling for ideas.

    I'm just wanting to create a form programmatically. I'm requiring GF in my plugin, but I need it to make a form on activation. My plan right now is to use GF to make the form and use the "export form XML". Then I can include the XML in my plugin and use the import form XML hook to create the form on activation.
