Hi and thanks for a great great site first of all.

But im having trouble finding some examples and great resources for some
simple form submit into database and display it with output and NOT the drupal_set_message.

Im not the smartest in the form API yet, i understand the database videos you have made, but i think they are a little too complex to begin with. Lets say that you want to make a jobsearch site, and the user should fill out some forms with info and then afterwards view the info he or she have submitted.

I have searched on google also, and all of the examples i find are really complex, any ideas?

Lets say i have a really simple form, that i just want to insert into the database and retrieve the info so you can style it.


function simpleform_menu() {
$items['simpleform/form'] = array(
'title' => 'Simple form',
'description' => t('form upload'),
'page callback' => 'drupal_get_form',
'page arguments' => array('simpleform_form'),
'access callback' => TRUE,
return $items;

function simpleform_form($form, &$form_state){
$form['name'] = array(
'#type' => 'textfield',
'#title' => 'name',
'#description' => t('place your name'),
$form['submit'] = array(
'#type' => 'submit',
'#value' => 'Send',
return $form;
