I wonder if there is a mouse driven point-and-shoot real time CSS layout tool?

I'm currently looking for a visualCSS layout tool,
and has the capability to generate codes automatically.

I wish you share your idea brothers... :)
I have a feeling that this one is already exist.
can you share that to me huh?



Thank you in advance. ('GOD will bless you for your kindness!')

i'm not aware of any like that (especially not that create valid code). the problem comes with positioning. there's just something about trying to get a computer to account for all the variations possible for a float or other diplay element.

if someone is aware of one, i'd love to test it out, too.

I don't think you're going to find much if anything. Obsidian is right... it's layout that becomes the problem and it'd be hard to produce standard CSS.

another problem with this idea is the whold naming convention problem that dreamweaver and frontpage run into... what the heck does "style1" as a class name tell you when naming your styles?

with a script generator like you're looking for, you're really getting into a lot of "hand tying" for future updates.

now, something i have done before that worked pretty well is this: give people a few templates to choose their layout from (CSS only, of course), then let them choose their color schemes and store those hex values in a database... similar to how some forums handle custom styles.
