hi, im back... again... sorry lol.
over the past few months ive been asking code related questions, but this time its more of a reference question... i wasnt sure which forum to stick this in so please move me if im in the wrong one
okies back to the question. basically ive been writing a html editor (htmliate) with php support (future builds will add asp/jsp/xml/etc...). some of you may remember it from my recent html thread. anyway, one of my ideas was to add a tag panel to just add any html tag with the click of a mouse button, this became buggy and problematic, so i redesigned the panel a short while ago. its now a combo (dropdown list) full of html tag names, with a few options etc.. to allow changes to the tag, and then the click of a button to add it to the page (before you all complain about this idea, its actually primarily a text based editor, just a few optional popup panels to make things simpler for those who know how to use the commands but dont like all the typing
), anyway, with this new panel design, its now possible to add the same support for pretty much any web based language by giving the user an option of what to populate the combo with. so im now here hoping somebody knows of a decent php tag/command listing.
i realise php is more of a command language than a tags language but im hoping theres still a lot i can populate the list with. so if anyone knows of either a php tags listing or a php commands listing etc.. (or a combination of the two), please post here. you may even end up in the credits
an example of the type of listing im looking for is this...
...thats the one im using for the html tags. the tag name (comment, escape sequences, etc...) is the listing in the combo, once selected, sample code is generated using the actual tag. plus further clickable options etc... the generated code can then be editted before adding to the current curser location. this list has proven to be perfect for this method as im not exactly a html pro, but im not asking for anything as perfect. for now, just the command name and basic example (like the ones on that page before you click on them) will do. i can find reference for each command/tag after ive populated the combo.
anyway, i know ive probably written too much info, and most of it may not be needed, but i thought if i explain how the basics of the idea work, youll all have a better understanding of the type of list im looking for.
p.s: hmm, thought it might also be an idea to add a poll and see if any of you (more experienced php coders) think it would be possible to add this list like it is with html, or if im just digging a big hole...
