Internal PHP, JS and HTML Editor

ExeOutput for PHP features an internal PHP, JavaScript and HTML Editor that lets you directly edit the source code of PHP, JS and HTML pages with syntax highlighting.

To open it, go to the File Manager, then select an HTML page, JS or a PHP file and press Edit. The editor looks like this:


As you can see on the screenshot, the PHP can be edited in the text box (the PHP syntax is highlighted).

At the top side of the window, you can find a toolbar with standard character and paragraph formatting tools, as in standard HTML editors. The HTML editor also includes four buttons that give you access to special commands and search tools.

Note: leave the mouse cursor on a button and its description will appear in the small hint window.

Using the editor

To modify the PHP/HTML code, use the text box and make your changes. Be sure to press OK to confirm your changes; ExeOutput for PHP will save changes back to your HTML, JS or PHP file. Note that a backup file can be created (.~XXX extension): see the Environment Options.

Special commands

First button: adding images

This command lets you insert links to images into HTML pages: clicking this button will show you the list of available graphic compatible source files. You can then select the wished graphic file and the associated HTML code will be inserted.

Second button: insert HEScript calls

This button is especially designed if you work with HEScript scripts (advanced users only). When you click it, ExeOutput for PHP can insert an HTML link () to call a procedure or a function from an HEScript script. First, all of the script functions available in your project are displayed: you can choose which one you want to insert. Then ExeOutput inserts an HTML hyperlink that will call the script function when end users click it.

To create HEScript scripts, please go to the Scripting tab.
