RadPHP is geared for those who don't have much experience with coding. While this isn't a bad thing that means there are some limitations when you want to code something by hand in this PHP editor. We would recommend looking elsewhere if you want to have more control over what you are doing with your site.
This PHP editor is geared for those who don't feel as comfortable using the code and want more of a design application that will code for them. There are three views available for the page, including: code, design and history. The history tab lets you see what has changed between versions in a quick glance. This is useful, but we would have liked to see a preview tab instead. We were pleased that overall this PHP toolkit is easy to use for those who don't have much coding experience. One of the biggest drawbacks is this PHP editor doesn't have auto-complete. That means you have to know exactly how to spell each piece of code, script or tag you want to use, including the formatting.
One of the features we found incredibly useful while working with this PHP editor was the IDE insight. This lets you search through the various commands and elements to find the one you are looking for. Because they are all stored in the application, you don't have to worry about knowing the exact coding to get a button to work using PHP. It has all of the information contained in a table and will code it properly for you. If you don't want to bother with all of the pre-programmed elements, you can view everything in the code tab and code it by hand if you wish.
This particular PHP editor was fairly easy to navigate through. There are a lot of windows and buttons, but those can be changed how you want them to be. We were also impressed with the quick toggle options, whether you want the default view or a debugger view. The other element we like is the easy drag-and-drop option. This doesn't only apply to moving code around in the text editor but for moving variables and pieces of information between tables and windows. This makes it really easy to use the data navigator built into the PHP development software application.
As far as help and support goes, this PHP editor has a lot of good information. Not only is there a help option within the application with useful tips and tricks, but the website provides nearly a dozen tutorials that cover information from what is new in this release to using specific functions of the PHP software application. If you want more personalized help you can always contact the company using an email form or the phone number. Something else we were impressed with was the forums and all of the information contained there for this PHP editor.
This PHP editor has some good options for designing something using a drag and drop option but the code editor is limited. If you are hoping for something that will help walk you through the coding, RadPHP isn't right for you.
This application can has an easy drag-and-drop system for adding elements.
This product is geared for pre-programmed elements but doesn't explain them.
There are few features for people who need help understanding the code.
