Project Release Information
This release adds ten new features, four enhancements, and three bugfixes. The major new features are: the ability to define the scope of automatic fields (onload, onshow, var), new methods SetOption() and GetOption() which enable you to define options one by one or in one shot with a full array of options, an "include_path" option for templates and sub-templates, the ability to define aliases of blocks, and a new operator for formating text (lower case, upper case, etc.).
This version brings 6 new features and 5 bug fixes. Please note that the main TBS is now for PHP5. Another package provides the class for PHP4 and will not be supported for a long time. PDO and MySQLi are now natively supported. The MergeBlock() method accepts a new argument for Query parameters. The PlugIn() method supports direct commands. The internal method meth_PlugIn_SetEvent() was added to enable or disable a plug-in's event. f_Xml_FindTagStart() was added, which can be useful for plug-ins and external tools. An optimization was made for the "att" parameter placed in block's fields.
This version brings 6 new features and 6 bugfixes. The new features are: a parameter "htmlconv=utf8" that forces the data conversion into UTF-8; a parameter "ope=msk" that applies a mask on the field's value; a new plugin event named "OnCacheField"; a couple of new properties that allow you to cancel the merging of the automatic fields [onload] and [onshow]; a parameter "atttrue" that merges an XML/HTML attribute like a Boolean attribute; an option to limit PHP functions accepted by the parameters "ondata" and "onformat"; and automatic sub-blocks that support an optional column.
This version brings six new features and five bug fixes. Blocks can now be defined in single XML/HTML elements (<x />) as if they were coupled elements (<x></x>). A new number format with leading zeros was added. Two operators for managing magnet elements were added. A parameter for cutting strings that are utf-8 was added. Another parameter for converting a string into an URL directly in the template was added.
4 minor bugfixes. A new parameter "rename", which allows you to rename blocks and fields in a sub-template before it is inserted.
TinyButStrong is a template class for PHP that allows you to generate XML/HTML pages and any other files based on text source. The engine gives facilities to work with any databases, including in native PDO, MySQL, PostgreSQL, SQLite, PHP arrays, and more. It is possible to design templates using any visual editor (like Dreamweaver or FrontPage), and thus to make templates that are compatible with W3C standards for example. It features simple block management, useful display formats, conditional displaying for blocks and locators, remote XML/HTML attribute modification, a cache system, and the ability to include sub-templates and execute associated scripts. Plug-ins are supported since version 3.0.
