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".

Tony Broadbent: "Such a great product! I have been struggling to hand craft pages which, with your PHP Generator, I created beautifully within 5 minutes of downloading it".

Combo box

Select this control to create a combobox, a combination of a drop-down list and a single-line editable textbox, allowing the user to either type a value directly or select a value from the list. By default, PHP Generator for MySQL enables a combo box lookup editor for a column linked by a foreign key with a single column from another table (if Setup lookups by foreign key option is enabled).

 

 

Max width

Use this property to restrict the maximum width of the editor (this means that in any screen resolution editor's width will be less or equal then the property value). Can be specified in any units supported by web browsers e.g. 300px, 25em, 50%, etc.

 

Value

Use this field to fill the combobox with more convenient values instead of stored ones. For this purpose use the Value list window or enter them manually as pairs allowed_value=value_to_be_represented separated by commas (Example: 1=One, 2=Two).

 

Most frequently used values

Use the ellipsis button next to this field to specify combobox values to be always displayed at the top of the drop-down list.

 

 

Item caption template

This option allows you to populate the combobox with values of several columns. For this purpose, specify a template to be used for each item in the list.

 

 

Inline styles

Use this field to set formatting options to be used inside the <style> tag of the element. For example, to set the font color and the background color for a control, place the following string to Inline styles:

 

color: red; background-color: yellow;

 

Custom attributes

This property allows you to add simple metadata to individual elements, largely for the purpose of providing information to make JavaScript functions easier. Such attributes can be later handled in client-side events. For example, to add several custom attributes to an editor, enter the following string into the Custom attributes edit box:

 

data-city="Boston" data-lang="js" data-food="Bacon"

 

It is recommended to prefix all custom attributes with data- to keep the result document compatible with the HTML5 requirements.
