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".

Jonathan Oakes: "This is a lovely application. It's easy to hook into my own bespoke applications. It's very powerful, yet really quite simple to use. Thanks for this".

More customization options

Custom Style Sheets

It is also possible to define custom styles to be applied after all pre-defined CSS rules. This can be useful to define such things as size of controls, text alignments, background images, and more. More about user-defined styles.



Events are pieces of code that are run when an action is taken by the user. Such events as OnBeforePageExecute, OnCustomRenderColumn, and OnCustomDrawRow can be used to change the webpage appearance. Please find some examples of using these and other events in our demo application and in the Resources section at the product home page. Open the User Javascript window to define functions to be called from event handlers and other client-side code for your website.


Custom templates

While all the previously described methods allow you to define colors, fonts, text alignments, and other display attributes of generated webpages, this one helps you to redesign the webpages entirely i.e. define what controls are displayed on a specific form, where they are displayed, and what they display.
