I found the hardest part about using PHPMaker is finding good examples and use cases of all the system functions. More code snippets and maybe documentation on every single function available with an example would help. I cant discredit what they have already done. The help document is great its just lacking for someone looking to really make huge changes

Its such a powerful tool I want to know every part of it.

I agree with perci100. There are lot of information in help file, but as a beginner it's hard to find the right information. Also everything in the help file is organized from GUI in the app (which is right for a help file) but not the best way when learning from the beginning.

I'm making notes with knowledge I'm learning by the time. It's organized by problem/functions in a format like:

Hide tab from add/copy page (JavaScript)
Client Script -> Table_Specific -> Add/Copy Page -> Client Script


This has been very helpful and a good source when learning. Perhaps we could have a documentation organized as:

Part 1: Making a project
This is found in the help file but lack of a good overview and detail information.

Part 2: From GUI to Code
Howto use Code part of PHPMaker, where to put code etc

Part 3: Howto's
As described above in Problem/Function
