Hi, I've just downloaded and installed PDT on my Mars and it's great.

But how do I turn on the object-oriented editing help e.g. instead of typing "this -> connect" I'd like to have have PDT fill it with "this -> connect->"

At the moment, simply typing "->" generates a syntax error, unexpected '->'

If you are editing a PHP file, you should be able to press CTRL-. (CTRL + period key) to put in the "->" for you. However, entering it either way works fine. Are you typing "this->connect" or "$this->connect"? You need to include the "$" (which is hard to remember when you are moving between languages).

Good luck.
