I have been using UltraDev for the last year with my ASP code and it is great. The best I have seen let for ASP. But UltraDev with PHP is mainly just a fancy Notepad. But it sounds like they did a good job with MX/PHP.
Also if MX work the same way they did UltraDev you can edit the code it writes for you. Example your question about customizing your MySQL error "or die(mysql_error())". This is build by script installed on your machine and are editable. For you can find the MySQL script and change "or die(mysql_error())" too what you want. You can do a search on macromedia's site on how. I have never did let, but read about it in a book on Ultrradev once. Thanks for you input, Mark. _________________________________________ Mark McCulligh, Application Developer / Analyst Sykes Canada Corporation www.SykesCanada.com (888)225-6824 ex. 3262 [EMAIL PROTECTED] ----- Original Message ----- From: "Dan Vande More" <[EMAIL PROTECTED]> To: "Mark McCulligh" <[EMAIL PROTECTED]>; <[EMAIL PROTECTED]> Sent: Wednesday, July 10, 2002 11:56 AM Subject: RE: [PHP] Development Tools > Mark, > > I have been developing with PHP for 1 year now, and about 1 month ago got DMX, I have to say that I spend much much less time on building forms and little repetitive work, and more on building applications.
