    Can I retrieve a form's source code by a call to your api?

    Asked by AmSteve on December 16, 2016 at 06:14 PM

    I think this question needs to be forwarded to a different department but can never remember which/how.

    I'd like to issue a API call from my webapp to my account and retrieve the same source code as I do when I visit your portal's Publish page.

    Hello AmSteve,

    I am not sure if I have understood your question correctly. Do you mean to say that you want to use our API to get the source code of form? 

    Please note that you can use our API to get all the questions you have in a form. I would suggest you to please take a look at the following API:  http://api.jotform.com/docs/#post-form-id-questions

    Hope this helps.

    Do get back to us if you have any questions or you meant to ask something else.

    Thank you!
