Everyone who uses daily builds of our PHP support in NetBeans IDE might noticed couple of new features that were added after 6.9.1. One of them is Type Hierarchy View which is helpful for OO PHP code.

To show this view use action from editor popup menu: Navigate > PHP Type Hierarchy. One can assign shortcut for this action - use the same steps as described here.

Then you will see type hierarchy in window next navigator like this:

Two buttons let you choose one of two views:

  • Subtype hierarchy - displays class and its subclasses or interface and the classes that implement it (on the picture above)
  • Supertype hierarchy - displays classes that are extended and interfaces that are implemented
All the issues or enhancements please report in NetBeans Bugzilla
