code hints Rapid PHP

Postby olephant » Mon Sep 07, 2015 12:58 pm

I'm checking out Rapid PHP but I notice when I click one of my functions in my code I don't get any hints to what arguments the function is expecting.
Even a PHP function like 'join' doesn't give me any hints.
Is there a tick box I can click to switch that on?

Also right click and 'find declaration' is not working.
I've defined the project and PHP is installed correctly.
The actual functions file is also open in the editor.
Any ideas?

1) Click menu Project -> Edit current project -> Library Paths and make sure that you declare where the PHP files of your project are located there (possibly the root folder of your project).

2) The arguments of the function won't be shown when you click on the function, but after you type "(" after function name, or by placing the cursor somewhere inside the brackets and pressing ctrl + shift + space.

3) join function is a special curiosity, if you use implode instead you will see the parameters. I think it's because PHP documentation does not specify arguments of join function, just says that it's an alias.

Ah ..thanks- library paths fixed it .. and implode works too

It would be great if you could make "ctrl + shift+space" a toggle - so it stays on till it's turned off.
I rely on that a lot.

Am moving from another IDE and so far this looks great !
