Use of CSS with PHP in an IDE?

Postby richb201 » 21. December 2016 00:00

Ok, I have started on my journey. I think I have a very, very basic understanding of PHP and also MySQL. The last part that is missing is "how to create an HTML page with the various controls"? I understand that I will likely need to populate these controls by using PHP and possibly SQL calls. Is there a recommended IDE that both allows a developer to design a UI and place PHP code?

This is just the beginning, not the last part :D
To populate HTML forms you don't need SQL. You need SQL if you want to store or retrieve information/data persistant.
You even don't need PHP to create forms. That is done only with HTML and if you wish CSS to design them.
I would recommend to follow a HTML/CSS/PHP/MySQL tutorial to learn the needed basic knowledge you need.

You mean a WYSIWYG editor like Microsoft Frontpage or Adobe Dreamweaver? Yes, they exist. But they don't produce good code so i would not recommend to use them.
HTML, CSS and PHP are way to flexible and complicated than a WYSIWYG editor can handle. Even worse you will not get a feeling how all of these script and markup languages are working and get problems you would not have without these editors.

Use a good plain text editor. There are plenty of them.
We don't provide any support via personal channels like PM, email, Skype, TeamViewer!
