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".
David Lantz: "Thank you, this is by far the simplest, and most friendly utility for building db record system I have ever used. I wish I could get my systems guys at the office to purchase this for our company would be so very helpful and speed up a lot of work. I for one have used it for everything from a simple inventory record of my house, to a members record for my church just little pet projects and a test bed to test my own db builds and theories before having to hand code at the office..... it is a lot of fun to work with".

SQL Maestro Group is happy to announce the release of PHP Generator 12.8, a GUI frontend that allows you to generate high-quality PHP scripts for the selected tables, views and queries for the further working with these objects through the web. There are versions for MySQL, MS SQL Server, PostgreSQL, Oracle, SQLite, Firebird, DB2, SQL Anywhere and MaxDB.

Top 10 new features:

  • New modern look and feel. The main goal of the new version is to provide a capability to construct a modern-look and powerful web applications in the simplest possible way. For this purpose we significantly changed the design for all generated pages and refactored the web code. We hope you and your end-users will like the new UI. As usual, all the new features can be seen in action in our demo application.
  • Enhanced master-detail management. The new version provides some extremely useful features such as inline displaying of nested detail views without limitation on the depth and displaying several detail presentations simultaneously on the tabs.

  • Custom templates. From now on you can customize the design and layout of pages produced by PHP Generator according to your needs. For example, you can change captions, re-arrange controls, or even add a chart diagram for a certain page.

  • Automatic Filter Row. This row is displayed at the top of the data rows and allows you to filter data on the fly by typing text directly into the row. When you type the text within a cell in the row, a filter condition is automatically created based upon the values entered and applied to the column. The filter is updated automatically after 1 second after entering a value or when you press the Enter key.

  • Filter Builder. This control displays filter criteria as a tree structure and allows you to visually build complex filter criteria with an unlimited number of filter conditions combined by logical operators. The Filter Builder window can be invoked by pressing the Create filter link at the bottom of the grid.
