UEStudio integrated development environment tour: PHP support

The UEStudio tour is intended to guide you through some of the advanced IDE features of the application. UEStudio includes all of the features of UltraEdit, the world's best text editor, which are not covered here.

UEStudio tour: PHP support

Did you know you can run your PHP scripts, check the script output, and check your PHP syntax all from within UEStudio? UEStudio supports several PHP functions directly from the script toolbar. When the HTML PHP commands button is pressed in the script toolbar a submenu with PHP commands is presented.

Note: Before you can access and use the PHP script functionality in UEStudio, you will need to download and install PHP on your system and then set the location to the PHP executable in Advanced -> Configuration -> Integrated Applications -> PHP. If you haven't already installed PHP on your system please go to php.net/downloads.php and download and install the latest version.
