Web Ui controls for PHP?

Hi Guys,

Being an experienced c#.net consultant I jumped into a php project and
apart from the obvious learning curve it's pretty disappointing to
realize I can't find any decent UI controls library for php (compare
that to 10+ vendors for .net). In particular I'm in a desperate need
of an editable Grid - TreeView mix control (like
http://demos.devexpress.com/ASPxTree...ing/Modes.aspx )
that would support hierarchy, ajax'ed loading and be editable.

Any ideas where I could look for such a control?

Thanks a lot in advance!
Andrey

That's not the way it works outside the .Net universe. Instead of a
controls library, you would normally use a UI framework. Those are
usually written in pure JavaScript in a server-agnostic fashion, so
that they can be integrated with any back-end technology.

Try one of these:

Not necessarily. Those pages fail when javascript is disabled.

I've written some similar stuff in the past - it wasn't that hard to do
it all in php and html.

I would use javascript (AJAX, actually) for the expansion, but would
have a backup of refreshing the page in the case javascript is disabled.

a component in UI framework;

Unfortunately PHP itself has nothing like that. Prado is the only
component-based php framework I know, but the OP would probably have
to write the control by himself ;)

Another word for a widget. A user interface element like a view, or a
button strip or all the various other styles of controls your
operating system provides.

While I know very little about the .net world, I'd imagine that
Microsoft probably provide activeX controls for internet explorer that
let you create controls in web pages that support a visual studio-
implemented back end. The OP is, if I read this right, complaining
about the lack of such controls in PHP.

Oh. I assumed you meant desktop because of the wealth of good UI
libraries out there for web stuff. I hardly ever code these things
from scratch in php I just invoke the correct methods from one of teh
framework libraries.

PHP DG,PEAR::Structures_DataGrid, not to mention toolkits with budled
datagrid controls like prado, phpeanuts, Zebra PHP, Symfony.... is

Hi, plesase try www.extjs.com, is a javasript framework, a lot of
widgets (controls), you have to code the database layer, but the
result is similar to devexpress controls.
