[Catalyst] FormBuilder not working

Hello Abhishek,

I suspect the problem is with the naming of your files and dir structure.

If search2 method is in the Project module you will need to do the

1. create a project sub dir in your root/forms dir
2. move your form definition file to the root/forms/project/search2.fb
3. Your template should be defined in root/project/search.tt2 you specify
this in your code
     $c->stash->{template} =3D 'project/search2.tt2';
    This is unecessary since Catalyst does this for you.

I do have to say I am a little confused, cause you refer to
root/src/search2.tt2 at the start of the email, in that case you might just
need to rename your form file to search2.fb to match you method's name.

Hope this helps you figure out what went wrong,
