Ok, so i switched from 2.1 to 2.2 Helios, because I was getting nuts with the horribly general slowness of Eclipse and heard that Helios was faster.|
Well, it is! So for some days I was really happy about it. Unfortunately, it is broken on some very important features.
Like the "open declaration" feature. I need this working. If I didnt cared about it, I would use a simple text editor. The #1 reason I use eclipse is because I can ctrl+click (or F3) at any function or method and I will be taken to its declaration.
But in the new PDT, this works for some methods, and not for others. Whats is strange is that the IDE will show a method on the code completion, and then will be unable to finde its declaration once its written.
It seems to be related with hierarchy. For example:
$sel = new Zend_Form_Element_Select();
foreach($this->_opts as $key=>$value)
}//foreach this->_opts as key => value
Here, open declaration will work for "addMultiOption", but will not work for "loadDefaultDecorators". The difference between those 2 methods is that the first is declared on "Zend_Form_Element_Multi" (which "Zend_Form_Element_Select" extends), and the latter is declared on the base class "Zend_Form_Element".
PDT, however, knows about "loadDefaultDecorators": it is show in the code completion. But cant find it for "open declaration".
Therefore, it is broken. Ive been insisting on eclipse, despite all its issues. But I am about to give up. In fact, I will be using Netbeans at least until I can get "open declaration" working properly again, because I need it and annoys the heck out of me when I want to use it and its not avaliable. And I cant go back to that crawling resourse hogger that was the last version.
Unless there is something wrong with my eclipse. Is anyone else having this problem?
