Not commenting on the appropriateness or security of the eval function. Merely offering a possible path. It is up to the OP to decide if that solution is the correct one.

eval ($code);

Someone relatively famous[1] once said "If eval is the answer then you're asking the wrong question."

The eval function is dangerous. Extremely dangerous. From every point of view there is. If there's another way to do what you're doing (and there almost always is), do that instead. In this case a description of the form would be a better thing to store in the DB rather than the code to generate it.

Hi, Hitting up the list for maybe a decent link(s) or pointers.
I need to figure out how to generate forms and form elements from php code inside database tables. Hope this makes sense. It's not a complete picture of what I need to do but the first step I'll need to take.

TIA
Mark
