    hi all --

    has anyone ever had any success making dreamweaver display colored PHP like EditPlus or Jext does ? the Phatk extension is nice for database connectivity, but i don't see anything differnt with the code color schemes.

    thx,
    Geoff

    I am pretty sure you can't. Another reason not to use Dreamweaver for coding anything other than HTML.

    i've made sure to back away from any kind of WYSIWIG editors.
    i hand code everything now. Makes things much easier.

    It might be possible to write an extension for highlight php code in the Code View Window. Actually, it wouldn’t be that hard.. just highlight everything between <? and ?>. But, what’s the point? If you are using UltraDev with the PHP server Model PhAKT (or ImpAKT) then you’re dragging and dropping code anyway. It’s not easy to edit the script UltraDev writes. UD expects to see certain things in certain locations of the file. Mess it up and the page won’t display correctly.

    I use UD only for my ASP work. Because I hate ASP and there are SO many ASP extensions and behaviors for UD that you can do almost anything with it.

    Homesite with the php expression builder add-on is the best to me. Color coding, plus you can see when you forget a " .. Which I do often. It also does much more, great set up for coding.
