Hi,
 
I am wroking on the project with following need.
 
Step 1: The admin(non technical user) can design the form runtime and add asp.net user controls eg textboxes, drop-down list, radio buttons etc either by drag and drop or by any button click event. Lets say the admin designed a form for the tax office with following details:-
 
Textbox for name, email and address
radiobutton for self employee or employee
checkbox for newsletter. -------This step is fine i can add the controls runtime
 
Step 2: Once the form is designed the admin can save the from and let other end users to fill that. ---- but how to save the from to let the end user use that?
Step 3: The data must be saved into the database. ---- how to go ahead with the database, because i dont know what the user will chose..based on my research EAV model is somewhat i can use. However, i read a few drawbacks of that as well.
 
any help will be highly appreciated.
 
Kind regards

You are talking about cms.
You can use some external cms framework like
www.dotnetnuke.com/
umbraco.org/
www.kentico.com/
 
Or you can create your own cms but this too difficult than what are you thinking. This will itself become project.
If you still want to create your cms then refer these links.

I will suggest you to use already present cms technology.
