PHP does not create visual objects. Are you referring to something like Frontpage or Dreamweaver that will create the HTML for you?

There are php IDE's but not to the same extent as Visual Studio. You still need to write the actual code. The IDE will simply help you manage the files, offer syntax highlighting/corrections and insert code snippets. There isn't an IDE that will let you build a script using point and click.

PhpEdit is quite a popular php IDE. it may help you get started.
