Delphi Programming

Delphi for PHP.

Delphi for PHP is CodeGear's first IDE for interpreted languages. It's a RAD environment that runs in Windows that produces standard-compliant PHP code. It was made by Qadram and includes dozens of components, even for AJAX and access to databases (MySQL and InterBase). It also uses the VCL for PHP open source framework. Delphi for PHP needs at least PHP 5 (5.2+ recommended).

  • Save Project As... fixed (QC 43580)
  • Updated sourcecode documentation for the VCL
