Using different form templates

Default form template

See Configuring the Default Form Template.

Custom extension method

If you would like to change the template being used across one or more forms, or would like a method name that is more meaningful to your application than BeginChameleonForm, you can simply define you own extension method instead, e.g.:

    public static class FormHelpers
        public static IForm<TModel> BeginMyApplicationNameForm<TModel>(this HtmlHelper<TModel> htmlhelper, string action = "", FormMethod method = FormMethod.Post, HtmlAttributes htmlAttributes = null, EncType? enctype = null)
            return new Form<TModel>(htmlhelper, new MyFormTemplate(), action, method, htmlAttributes, enctype);

You can exclude some of the optional parameters if you never have a need to configure them per form. Also, this assumes you have a custom template called MyFormTemplate, but you could just as easily use a built-in template inside ChameleonForms.

Using multiple templates in a single application

If you want to use different form templates across multiple forms in a single application then you can't make use of FormTemplate.Default and you will need to create multiple extension methods (as shown above) for each form template you want to use. Then you opt in to a particular type of template by using the corresponding extension method for a given form.
