Why are widgets not loading on the local html file generated by the Full Source Code?

    I created a form with a DATA GRID, in the preview option it looks correctly, but if I download it, I install it on my computer and test it on my computer it does not look.

    See attached images

    I'm afraid you're testing this the wrong way. You can't load the widgets and other elements of the form if you will just locally open the .html file generated from the Full Source code ZIP you downloaded.

    You need to have a localserver (an actual server like XAMPP, WAMP or LAMP) to load the forms correctly. Double clicking the local .html file and loading it on your browser will never work.

    Or, upload the source code to your web server instead.

    BTW, the only reason why someone would use the Full Source Code is when you need to apply custom coding to your form that can't be inserted through the Form Builder. If you're not doing any of those, the Default Embed method or the iFrame Embed method should suffice.
