    OK, I'm still in the learning process of SF 4, so far so good. In my test site I created a 'contact us' page, works, etc. however, I want to take it to the next level. Can I create a custom form within VS 2010 that calls non SF code and store this data into a non SF database?

    I'm looking to integrate some other tools within my site and so far I'm not seeing anywhere on how I can accomplish this.

    As far as I know Sitefinity is a normal .NET WebApplication. You can do anything with it just like your normal ASP.NET WebApplication. But it also provides a very cool framework to work with. If you can make use of it, fantastic. or you can circumvent the Sitefinity Framework and write your own code.... which by the way defeats the purpose of Sitefinity...

    i'm looking to connect to an external web service for sales lead generation and so far I don't see anything that will work that is "built in" to the SF framework. Other then that I'm building my site with the "out of the box" SF tools, controls, etc.

    Hello,

    There is a Web service - ~/Sitefinity/Services/Forms/FormsService.svc. That  you can try to use. You can type "help" after the service to see all methods that you can call.

    Best wishes,
