I\'m starting to develop my first serious web-based database application using Dreamweaver, PHP and MySQL. I\'ve created one site before which used PHP and MySQL (see http://www.hughpicks.com) but the layout of the pages were pretty basic. I am now ready to take on something a bit more challenging.

I have an application I wrote in Visual FoxPro which has fairly intensive screen layouts. My question is, can I use DW to place my form fields (for data entry) whereever I need to, using PHP code? Exactly how time intensive is it to develop data entry screens using Dreamweaver and PHP?

Anyone care to share their experience?

You can be quite creative with DW when it comes to placement, Try using tables. But just like everythigh there are limits.

Yes, I\'ll second that.

I do use DW as my main editor and PHP development tool. Main drawback is the missing layout view.

I usually develop my data entry forms in \'normal\' HTML mode first and then copy/paste it into the PHP section once I\'m happy with formatting and the way how the Style Sheets are picked up. I use a local installation of an Apache as the testing server which makes quick tests and publishs out of DW really easy.
