Hello @Ahmedebraheem,

you’re officially welcome to OpenEMR.

There are couple of ways you can use to create forms in OpenEMR.

  1. Layout Based Forms (LBF)
  2. Custom forms
    a. XML
    b. HTML & PHP

** LBF doesn’t require programming skills at all though there’s a little learning curve involved. It’ll take a little bit of playing around to be able to get used to. This is approach has limitations to look and feel. It is rigid.
Check out the presentation on LBF by @gutiersa tutorial

Kindly let me know how i can be of help.
