PHPEdit.

It has great code completion. but all we need now is an IDE like delphi that can code complete function and classes you have written and them were in business

scite is the name of the editor (or at least the name of the .exe file)

Overall it's a good editor. It still has a few flaws, but fewer then the other editors I've tried. it has config files for all different kinds of languages (php, html, vb, java, etc..)

I have used many of the editors listed by people in this thread at various times and did, by choice, use PHPedit for a long time. It is a competent editor in its own right but has been greatly superceded by the functionality within Macromedia Dreamweaver MX. If you are prepared to pay money for your editor then this is an excellent product for all round web development.

8O Dreamweaver MX can't do WYSIWYG php can it??!! I didn't think there were any WYSIWYG editors for PHP, all kinda manual, but helpful.. -but what do I know.. I use Notepad :P

phpedit (v0.6 on a win98 platform)

syntactically wonderful for class programming and not at all shoddy for procedural work

tried Vi and Vim and though they are great for many languages, they are beaten by phpedit if you're just after coding php

I'm happy with Dreamweaver MX for the coloring and easy file synchronization tools :)

VIM by far is the best editor IMHO... But that's because I don't like to try new editors when I already got my best friend...I mean, my text editor. I have it on my server, and I edit my pages directly via ssh. FUN!

vim is just great i preder pico but the ide's offer many functions such as class browsers, autocompletes, codebeautifiers that cut coding time down dramatically.

Zend Studio does that. That alone is reason enough to use it in my opinion.

For editing a single page or something where I don't need the functionality mentioned above, I tend to use vim (which seems to be a pretty popular choice here--what a bunch of geeks).

i dont find dreamweaver mx bad at all - it knows a bit, and you can code some things with the GUI, and it makes it easy to upload files, this is especially good if you're working with other people as it has checkin/out
