Peter Robinson: "As a tech savvy company director, I wanted an inexpensive web based database application to manage all aspects of my business. As with most humans I find developing purely by CLI very hard and do not have the will or time to invest in improving my skills. I was looking to find a nice human friendly GUI to design and build my application, which is when I came across PHP Generator for MySQL.

Whilst you still need a great understanding of logic and a small amount of programming ability to get the specific results you require, I am very happy with the speed of progress I have been making with this invaluable tool.

With all the standard libraries included, this product makes normal requirements such as JavaScript form validation, lookup selectors, on click events, auto complete, detailed searches, multiformat exports, rss feeds and username security straight forward and quick.

Having any changes made via the GUI written to the web server at the click of a button makes testing out ideas quick and easy without fear of breaking your application.

To conclude, I couldn't find any other product on the market that came close to offering the amount of options this does, and I do hope that more products like this come out in the future, with the hope of eventually eradicating the need to program all together".

Charles Phillips: "I very much like the program and all of its functionality! Would be happy to give you an endorsement or recommend it to others - saves me a ton of time".

Custom templates

Applications created by PHP Generator for MySQL use Smarty, a typical representative of the web template engines family. So in order to redesign a webpage, you need to change the appropriate template. All templates used by the software are stored in the components/templates subfolder of the output directory. Each folder in this catalog contains template files to be used by the application in different cases: on editing, printing, inserting, etc.

 

Using custom templates

 

To change the webpage appearance with custom templates, follow these steps:

 

  Create a new template. Custom templates must be stored under the components/templates/custom_templates folder which contents is not changing on re-generation of the scripts. You must create this folder manually.
  Instruct PHP Generator to use this template for the selected webpage with the OnGetCustomTemplate event.
  Customize the template according to your needs and preferences.

 

The detailed description of such customization is given in the appropriate article. Another article learns how to add a chart component to a webpage using the way described above. The demo application also shows some additional examples of using custom templates.

 

 

Changing existing templates

You can modify generated template files directly. The example of supplying of generated pages with look and feel of an existing website illustrates this method in the appropriate article. Since all the templates are rewritten each time you generate an application, you have to add modified templates to the Excluded files list to prevent them from overwriting.
