PHP does not provide native support for custom tags, but by using PRADO, a PHP 5 Web programming framework that supports creating custom components, you can simulate custom tags.
To develop PRADO Web applications, you instantiate pre-built and application-specific component types, configure them by setting their properties, respond to their events by writing handler functions, and compose them into application tasks. In her PHPBuilder.com article, Octavia Andreea Anghel uses a few examples from a demo application to demonstrate how you can implement custom components into your PHP applications using PRADO. You’ll learn how to:
- Create a login form
- Integrate PRADO table components into your application
- Validate user input
- Insert headers and footers
