Grey: "We're a two-person company, it's just me an my wife. I'm the technical guru, and she handles the business operations. I have to know a lot about MySQL, but that's much too technical for her. I have frequently had to setup CGI scripts (I code in Perl) so she can manage some of our tables (suppliers, manufacturers, etc).

I discovered PHP Generator a couple of days ago, tried the free version,and within a few hours I had purchased the Pro version (as well as SQL Maestro for MySQL).

Today I am completing the conversion of the last of my custom table managers to PHP Generator. This is eliminating several thousand lines of code that I don't have to support any more!

Thanks for this fantastic product".

Kirby Foster: "Nice software. Small, lightweight, works well. I evaluated lots of software before deciding that your software worked the best for what I do. Both Maestro for MySQL and PHP Generator have saved me lots of time".

SQL Maestro Group is happy to announce a release of PHP Generator 22.8, a GUI frontend that allows you to build high-quality and feature-rich data-driven web applications for your database in minutes. There are versions for MySQL, MS SQL Server, PostgreSQL, Oracle, SQLite, Firebird, DB2, SQL Anywhere and MaxDB.

The following is a list of new feature implementations since the last official release.

New feature highlights:

  • Generated php code is now fully compatible with all PHP versions up to PHP 8.1.
  • New and updated controls. This version extends the already wide spectrum of components available in grids, cards, and edit/insert forms.
    • Support for Toggles has been implemented. This control allows to represent logical column values in a comfortable view and to change them in one mouse click directly in data grid and cards. Text, size and style of toggles are customizable.
    • Support for Barcodes has been added (requires php 7.0 or higher). This view control allows you to represent string data as symbols that can be scanned electronically using laser or image-based technology. This version introduces 30 types of the most popular barcodes including UPC/EAN codes, Code 39, Code 128, and Postnet. The ability to set the foreground color makes it possible to use Barcodes in dark color schemes.
    • Support for QR Codes has been implemented. To represent column data as QR Code, just select the corresponding view control. Allow users to follow to specified links by clicking or tapping QR Codes using hyperlinks.

  • Added Portuguese (European), Greek and Latvian translations. Thanks to our users.
  • Added possibility to use shortcuts in any editor.

In addition to above, several bugs have been fixed and some other minor improvements and corrections have been made. For more information about a specific tool see the appropriate page:
