2. Add the layout update XML contents

Add the following contents to the file to display the Custom Contact Form with ID 1 as a regular form:

<?xml version="1.0"?>
<page xmlns:xsi="http://www.w3.org/2001/XMLSchema-instance" xsi:noNamespaceSchemaLocation="urn:magento:framework:View/Layout/etc/page_configuration.xsd">
        <referenceContainer name="content">
            <block class="PluginCompany\ContactForms\Block\Form\Widget\View" name="contactForm" template="PluginCompany_ContactForms::form/widget/view.phtml">
                <action method="setFormId">
                    <argument name="form_id" xsi:type="string">1</argument>
                <action method="setShowFormAs">
                    <argument name="show_form_as" xsi:type="string">form</argument>

You can change the form_id parameter to the ID of the form you’d like to show. Additionaly you can set the show_form_as parameter to either form or popup.

You’re done! Clear the cache and your contact form should show up on the product page.
