    You mean if you've got a global_includes.php with a lot of requires, then those included files won't be in the code completion?

    Bummer. I'm using a global_includes.php to make things easier for me. And code completion for my own functions is the main thing I'm missing in Topstyle as a php editor.

    That would have saved me a lot of headaches! For session variables as well?

    I thought that Komodo was to expensive for me, but did just notice they have a personal license. But ActiveState's website says nothing about differences between Pro and Personal. Does anyone know?

    What other editors let's me track variables and objects?

    I printed some papers and read on my commute home from work. Private edition does cover the features I need, and with a price at $29.95 it's within my budget. And, the reviews I read claims that release 3.0 is faster than 2.5, which was too much for my computer.

    Guess it's Komodo I should have a look at! Thanks for your help sorting out what features I should look for. Having a php debugger will be nice. I've never worked with a debugger before, so I guess I'll be back with questions about how to use it.

    i just got a trial of zend studio (3.5.2). I've been using my handy Dreamweaver MX 2004 so far, and for the sake of 'fun' tried out a few files done in DW with zend... now i dont know what the deal is, but it doesnt seem to like my postgresql code. when i run debug, it gets stuck at my connection string- call to undefined function... maybe i'm doing it wrong? i put the correct ftp junk in the correct place and it connects fine, but if it wont check code past that line in a page, it's not going to be very useful to me!

    if you are a linux person you should try bluefish. it is has pretty decent syntax highlight but doesn't have code completion or anything like that. i have been using it for a couple of months now and feel really comfortable with it.

    Just go zend with the personal usage license. Yes that means it's freeeeeeeee

    Zend kicks some serious butt, I love the extra completion of variable and class methods and properties. You need to try it to know what I mean.

    I will try both PHP Designer 2005 and Zend Studio in the next few days.

    I'll see how I like it and get back to you.

    I tried Zend Studio, but I did not like it.
    I like PHP Designer 2005 & HTMLGate.

    Biggest feature for me :-
    My hands should never have to leave the keyboard. I type code fast and I dislike having to feel around for a tiny icon just to compile my code or to look up a function in the manual.

    Presently I use HapEdit which is free and works a charm. I particularly like the project editor but has all the usual stuff like code completion (including user vars and functions), highlighting etc. Easy to integrate with XDebug.

    PHP Designer 2005 looks very similar but the interface is a bit fiddly for my taste

    One word: Nice!

    I didnt even know this existed. The "todo" function should help a lot of objective and commercial coders.

    Ok I tried Zend Studio, but could not get it to work locally with the Apache Server. It claims to be able to set it all up so you can test locally on the machine, but as far as I know, does not set it up to use it with mySQL. I'm not much of a network person, and I just want to get into coding instead of setting all this crap up to make it work.

    Result: Uninstall. Back to my Editplus, and simple uploads to site to test stuff.

    PHP Designer 2005. Interface has more bells and whistles than what I need, so back to Editplus.

    Editplus still remains my favorite choice. If I could get the simplicity of Editplus, with a package that could install on my local machine to test PHP and mySQL, I would use that program.

    So far, I haven't found a php/mysql package that will do this for me.
    I just want to code dammit.

    Emacs works great for me. Use the php-mode plug-in for color coding the text. Works on all platforms (I use windows and linux) and it's free.

    I've now installed Komodo, and it is nice. But: It doesn't seem to have code completion for functions/classes which are in files included through another file. I've got a file called global_includes.php which is used in all my files. global_includes in turn has a lot of require_once's for all my functions/classes.

    Is there any editor that supports this setup?

    I do believe Quanta Plus has this. I usually don't like code completion so I usually turn this off; so I won't be able to say much about how well it works. Unfortunately Quanta Plus isn't available for windows; you might be able to run it under OSX.

    I use HTML-Kit from www.chami.com. The only thing I am missing in it is code folding and automatic lining up of curly braces. Otherwise it's VERY stable and the one I keep going back to (talking MS Windows here).
    I just found this page, but I haven't had time to test it yet.

    Let us know if you do try it.

    Update to this post; I disliked it because it seemed to have
    installed its own Server package even though I swear I didn't
    click that option. Who knows, not going to worry about it.

    Reinstalled it and nitpicked @ every step to make sure
    I didn't accidently do something to cause the first problem.

    I must admit, after getting used to it I like it; I don't
    use pratically anything besides the anazlyer, debugger and
    the usual editor stuff like syntax highlighting etc.; I semi like
    the prompt for auto complete, but don't use it at all.

    Over all, I must say I like it; I like the Code Anazlyer best
    of all, since it helped me narrow down a problem even the
    debugger wouldn't find. (Concerning setting cookies)

    Downside is, I'm a teen student, not much $$ and the
    personal vers. doesn't have the one feature I'd like: Code Anazlyer.
    Everything else I can pretty much get from other editors like PHP Designer 05.

    Has anyone used TSW Webcoder? It seems pretty good, and I really liked how the panels I was not using got out of my way. I am also interested in PHP Designer 2005, but it is missing a few things for me.

    I currently use Homesite, and have loved it for years. I thought it was time to upgrade or move on, but the above two mentioned editors (which seem to be the best of the free lot for me) don't appear to really give me that much more than Homesite already has, or can have added to it.

    Lately I have been using a copy of Dreamweaver MX. But I still tend to go back to my go old SitePad Pro. It includes code folding and Syntact(sp??) Highlighting. Plus it supports a lot of file types and its cheap. My 2cents worth.

    I use Zend PHP coder, and love it. It's a little expencive but worth the price.
    I love their advanced debug mode, and the fact that it does automatic validation "the microsoft way" when you enter code.

    I tried Zend once, and thought that as far as PHP coding goes, its unbeatable. But it lacks a LOT in terms of HTML/CSS development. As such, for someone who is a general web developer, with Zend you would also need to have a second program open to deal with HTML/CSS.

    Is there not one program that encompasses all these needs???

    I agree that Zend isn't to good for html/css. For my html/css needs I use Dreamweaver, and couldn't be more satisfied.

    But then Dreamweaver doesn't come close to matching Zend's PHP support (analyzer, debugging, intellisense, etc). So you have to have both open if doing any full development.

    I just wish there was a program that combined the HTML/CSS functionality of Dreamweaver (or Homesite - I think DW is too bloated), with the PHP support of Zend.

    Has anyone used AceHTML 6? After reading its feature list, I got the impression it may offer the best partial combination of the functionality provided by Zend and DW. And for a fraction of the cost of buying those two monsters.
